Eid Al-adhar is comparable to our Christmas in importance. People have been fasting for the last few days, and the fast was broken last night after sundown. The sheep below, photographed yesterday on the market, are dead by now, their blood running in the streets (apparently, — haven’t been out on the streets yet). Most of the meat, that which cannot be eaten on the day of Eid, will go to charity. Here is a video link: Gazans prepare for Eid amid Israeli attacks
There was supposed to be a cease fire in Syria lasting through the Eid fest, but it has been broken.
