EXCLUSIVE PICTURES

Muslims worldwide began today, Tuesday 16 November, to celebrate the Eid Al Adha (Festival of the Sacrifice). In Palestine, the occasion is marked with visits and sacrifices in accord with a tradition started by the Prophet Abraham and has continued ever since.

During his Eid sermon delivered at the Palestine Stadium in Gaza City, Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh reaffirmed his commitment to national unity saying: “We reaffirm on this day our commitment to Palestinian unity, and we will continue to keep  the doors of reconciliation open,” despite the odds and external machinations.
