FILE - In this Sunday, Aug. 25, 2019, photo, relatives of Palestinian activist Tamer Sultan, 38, mourn next to a picture of him on a wall in his family home during his funeral in the town of Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip. The death abroad of a Palestinian who fled the Gaza Strip seeking a better life in Europe has highlighted the exodus of thousands of middle-class residents in recent years. Tamer al-Sultan's friends and family say he fled the oppressive rule of Hamas. Others are leaving because of the dire conditions in the territory, which has been under an Israeli and Egyptian blockade since the Islamic militant group seized power 12 years ago.
