Palestinian Bread Oven and Pitas

A Palestinian baker prepares to put bread into the oven at an old town bakery in Hebron in the West Bank, 22 September 2007. The price of one kilo of bread in the old town of Hebron is lower than in the new town centre in an effort by traders to encouraged Muslim Palestinians to shop in the old quarter for food to break their day long fast during Ramadan. During Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic calendar, Muslims fast during the day but then feast after sundown as lavishly as their budgets permit.
