LKS 20231016 2324; A Palestinian security officer stands guard at the Rafah border crossing with Egypt in the southern Gaza Strip on August 27, 2023. When the Palestinian government inaugurated its first airport with US president Bill Clinton in attendance, it was a symbol of the hopes for independence and peace created by the 1993 Oslo accords. But three decades later, the airport in Gaza lies in tatters, along with Palestinian hopes for an independent state. LEHTIKUVA / AFP, AFP / LEHTIKUVA / SAID KHATIB
