STOP the bombings! FREE Palestine

The History of Gaza

• Gaza Strip was established at the end of
the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. Its boundaries were
defined by the ceasefire lines. It was placed
under Egyptian rule and held in trust for a
future Palestinian state.

• At the end of the 1956 Suez-Sinai War, the
Gaza Strip was occupied by Israel. A year later
Israel withdrew its troops as a result of international
pressure and a United Nations Emergency
Force (UNEF) was placed in the Gaza
Strip.

• In June 1967, Israel recaptured the Gaza Strip
during the Six-Day War. In November of the
same year UN Security Council Resolution 242
called on Israel to withdraw from the Gaza
Strip and other ‘occupied territories.’
