Young Palestinian men practice parkour, a sport that involves climbing and jumping on buildings and other structures, in Gaza City on July 26. Mohammed al-Jahbir (right, in orange shorts), 21, gets defensive when people are surprised that Palestinians are into parkour. "When anything new comes out in Gaza, everyone is like, 'Oh, wow, they do parkour? Oh, wow, they surf?' It should be normal that we do these things here, too," he says.
