Israel & the Palestinian Territories - The Gaza Strip (PDF Chapter)
This is the Gaza Strip chapter from Lonely Planet’s Israel & the Palestinian Territo-ries guidebook.
Gaza has been off limits to travellers since 2007, when Hamas seized control of the strip and Israel responded by sealing its 1.8 million people off by land, air and sea. Even if it were possible for tourists to enter, it would not be advisable: the strip remains an unstable and dangerous place.
Coverage includes: Introduction, Further Reading, Gaza in Numbers, Ga-za Throughout History.
