Palestinian women work on a farm near the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel, east of the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis, on Oct. 28, 2020. Israel imposed a security buffer zone of 300 meters along the Gaza Strip's eastern border, claiming that the buffer zone could prevent Palestinian armed factions from launching attacks into the Israeli territory. However, this move took a toll on Gaza's agricultural sector as many fertile lands along the border have become too dangerous for Gazans to approach. (Photo by Rizek Abdeljawad/Xinhua)
