Demonstration in Rafah

A Palestinian boy holds up a banner reading in Arabic 'What if they destroy Al-Aqsa?' during a demonstration in Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip, on Oct. 5, 2015, after Israeli security forces temporarily banned Palestinians from entering Jerusalem's Old City and the Al-Aqsa mosque compound. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged 'a fight to the death against Palestinian terror' as clashes spread after two deadly attacks, while Jerusalem's Old City was closed to Palestinians for a second day.
