Palestinians and international supporters break the Ramadan fast next to the rubble of the Fawaqa family home in Sur Baher, Jerusalem, on 13 June. The Israeli authorities demolished the house the previous May on the pretext that it was built without a permit; the home owner claims that the authorities had refused to grant him a permit despite his several attempts.
