A Year in Photos: Looking Back at Haaretz Photographers' Best Shots From 2019

From the Lebanese border in the north to Israel's Bedouin communities in the south, Haaretz looks back on our most telling photos from 2019



Haaretz looks back on a year filled with mass demonstrations, military operations and political excitement. 2019 was kicked off by the Israeli army's Operation Northern Shield to destroy Hezbollah attack tunnels near the border. Amid various Gaza-border escalations lower south, Israel soon went into election mode in a tight race between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Kahol Lavan leader Benny Gantz. In the summer the country saw nation-wide protests sparked by the killing of 18-year-old Ethiopian Israeli Soloman Teka who was shot by an off-duty police officer. In the fall, Israel held its second general election in which voter turnout in Arab communities rose to 60 percent. In 2019's final months, the country was embroiled in political deadlock over government negotiations. Here's a look Haaretz photographers' best shots from the year.
