The Gaza strip is in the Palestinian region on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea that borders Egypt on the southwest and Israel on the east border.
The Gaza Strip is a tiny and crowded Arab enclave with about 1.8 million people jammed in.
The war is clearly over territorial control. The Gaza strip has been a hugely contested ground which the Arabs and the Jews have fought tirelessly for. In 1994, Israel granted the right of self-governance to Gaza through the Palestinian Authority. Prior to this, Gaza had been subject to military occupation, most recently by Israel (1967–94) and by Egypt (1958–67). Since 2007, the Gaza Strip has been de-facto governed by Hamas, a Palestinian group claiming to be the representatives of the Palestinian National Authority and the Palestinian people.
Gaza was already poor before Israel enforced a blockade for food, fuel, cement, paper for schoolchildren, and shoes – things people need to live.
Israel's military has controlled Gaza's borders, airspace and sea access for years and years.
Israel and Gaza conflict has a long history of animosity and outright hatred which cut deeper than any diplomatic feud of any nation. Looking at the world we would know that most nations do not agree on most economic and religious matters. One or two feuds of nations that we know has to be North Korea and South Korea, China and Japan as well as USA and Cuba, however this nations have resisted the edge to unleash a furry of missiles against one another.
What is with this war on terror that we largely hear about, why is it so important to fight terror, do children who parish on this wars or battles know why are they being killed and burned by authorities on a pursuit to have a just society.
Well our answers vary as they are largely based on our opinions than facts that corrode logic regarding loss of innocent lives.
The Israel as we know it now is home to wealthy Jews nationals, however prior to the 1960s the Israelites or Jews occupied a marginal land just outside Gaza mainland but because of resources and allied super countries Israel was able to occupy and acquire more land which historical belonged to the Arabs. No diplomatic means were applied in taking over land belonging to the Arabs. This irked most Arabs and the resistance against Israel occupation grew which saw militant groups like Hamas gain popularity with the Gaza natives.
In just under a month a massacre of women and children has been recorded only on the Gaza side and next to zero recorded from Israel who have the USA as their allies, recently a barrage of army artillery has seen its way into Gaza killing anything that moves. But can we truly believe that Israel is fighting Hamas as a threat to society or that Hamas is actually a terror grouping against the Israel and the USA. What however is of conspiracy theory diaries is that Gaza has a very rich gas which Israel and the USA wants, and that Hamas is refusing to enter into trade agreement with this two nations, this war can only end once rights to this gas are with this two wealthy powerful nations.
