A truly iconic photo:

The photograph of a young, shirtless protester in Gaza holding a Palestinian flag in one hand and swinging a slingshot over his head with the other was shot on October 22 by Mustafa Hassouna of Turkey’s Anadolu Agency. The young boy is 20-year-old Palestinian A’ed Abu Amro, who lives in al-Zaytoun neighbourhood in Gaza City. ‘I was surprised this picture of me went viral,’ he said. ‘I participate in protests on a weekly basis, sometimes more. I didn’t even know there was a photographer near me.’
