Gaza City, Palestinian Territories
Palestinians drag the dead body of a suspected collaborator with Israel through the streets of Gaza City, on 20 November. That week had seen heavy bombardment of Gaza by Israel, in what was known as Operation Pillar of Defense.
The dead man was one of six alleged collaborators killed at a city intersection by masked men, who forced them to lie on the ground, and shot them in the head. The military wing of the ruling Hamas organization claimed responsibility for the deaths.
