The Gaza Strip

By: Mai Trinh, & Caroline Cummings

The roots of the Gaza Strip conflict

The roots of the Gaza Strip conflict are in ethnicity, religion, and borders. As a result of the Roman invasion, there was a diaspora of the Jews. After the Holocaust, many Jews wanted to return to their homeland. The UN gave Jews a part of Palestine and called it Israel. The Gaza Strip is a small part of Southern Israel that is still in control by Palestinians. There is a blockade that separates the Jewish Israelis from the Muslim Palestinians.

Today, Palestinians are upset the Israelis are taking over Israel. A terrorist group called Hamas refuses to believe that Israel exists and will commit violent crimes to prove so.
