This year, many Palestinians around the world are commemorating the Naksa of 1967 and celebrating Ramadan at the same time. Though a lot has changed in the motherland since then, Ramadan's message stays strong. 

Because Ramadan is a part of a people's culture, and culture is a part of existence, and in the case of Palestinians, their existence is in itself a form of resistance. 

Here is a glimpse of Ramadan in Gaza and the occupied territories. 

1. It's the Qatayef season!

Which team are you on?  

2. Friends are a blessing!

In a world torn apart by bigotry and violence, friendships like this one help restore our faith in humanity. 

3. Having iftar by the sea in Gaza

4. Occupied Al-Khalil (Hebron)

5. Nablus sweets!

6. Ramadan in Jerusalem is something else!

7. Taraweeh at Al-Aqsa mosque is a dream come true to many Palestinians

Palestinian worshipers gather every night during Ramadan for prayer at Islam's third holiest site, after the Grand Mosque in Mecca and the Prophet's mosque in Medina.

Despite the occupation and apartheid, Palestinians' love for life triumphs at the end of the day. 

Ramadan Kareem from Falasteen!
