Social media users circulated a photo taken in Gaza on 22 October 2018 of a bare-chested Palestinian protester holding a giant Palestinian flag with his right hand and a stone-loaded slingshot in his left during a demonstration on the so-called Gaza border with Israel.

The photo was classified by the Guardian as one of the best photos taken in 2018.

It was originally taken by Mustafa Hassona for the Turkish Anadolu News Agency and it was widely shared at that time on social media.

Many have also compared it with the iconic painting from the French Revolution “Liberty Leading the People”.
