Mustafa Hassona, Palestinian rights of return protests
The conflict between Israel and Palestine has been going on for over one hundred years. Fighting has escalated once more, since 2018, with Palestinians protesting every week at the border with Israel. This is where the project titled Palestinian Rights of Return Protests emerged. Hassona’s images have caught the attention of the media and social networks – in particular, a picture of a young fighter, reminiscent of Eugène Delacroix’s famous picture, Liberty Leading the People.
Mustafa Hassona comes from the Gaza Strip and is a staff photojournalist at the Turkish news agency Anadolu.
