The climate of Gaza Strip (Palestinian Territories)
The Gaza Strip is a Palestinian Territory in the southwestern part of Israel and has been an autonomous region since 1995. The area is densely populated, four major cities are situated in this region: Gaza, Rafah, Khan Younis and Dayr al Balah. The Gaza Strip is located on the coast and borders the countries of Egypt and Israel. In addition to the conflict between Israel and the Gaza Strip there has been a civil war going on here since 2006. The conflict between Hamas and Fatah has already cost many lives. The economic situation in the Gaza Strip is problematic, there is a lot of poverty and unemployment figures are very high. Because of restrictions fishing vessels are not allowed to operate beyond a certain fishing zone, farming grounds cannot be reached because of military actions by Israel and the port has been destroyed years ago by bombardments. Free transportation of people and goods is prohibited. Because of constant tensions within the area and with the surrounding countries the Gaza Strip is not really a tourist destination. The Gaza Strip has a pleasantly mild Mediterranean climate with warm and dry summers and mild winters. During the autumn most rain can be expected. When spring starts temperatures rapidly rise.
