Gaza Strip is owned by the Palestine people and the entire world agrees to that. Lots of work has been done by world leaders to restore the claim and clearly define the boundary between Palestine and Israel.Why is the Gaza Strip important to Israel?
The Gaza Strip is important because it represents an important truth about the Arab war against the Jews of Israel. By expelling 11,000 of its own people, Jews, from their homes in Gaza, for the sake of ceding the land to the Arabs, as a unilateral gesture of peace, Israel has proven that its desire for peace is more than just words.Does Israel actually occupy the Gaza Strip?
The Gaza Strip is part of the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT), and has been under Israeli military control since 1967. For decades, Israel maintained a permanent armed presence in Gaza, expropriated land, and built colonies for a Jewish settler population that rose to more than 8,000.
