The climate of Gaza (Palestinian Territories)
Gaza is located on the Mediterranean Sea and is the most important city in the Gaza Strip. Gaza has been under the administration of the Palestine Authority since 1995. Gaza was founded in the 12th century BC by the Philistines and was an important port during that time. During medieval times the city was conquered and re-conquered by the Arabs and the Christians and eventually became part of the Ottoman Empire. After WWI the city was given back to the Arabs and the conflict with Israel was born. From 1948 there have been many conflicts. Because of these conflicts it is very hard to create a stable economy, despite the help from several countries in creating a port. This port was bombed by Israel to prevent the illegal trade in weapons. Tourism in Gaza is almost nil because of these conflicts. However, there are several cosy places in the city such as the local market and the beautiful beach. Gaza has a Mediterranean climate with warm and dry summers, fairly wet autumns and mild winters. During fall and winter low temperatures are uncommon. Temperatures remain pleasant and rapidly rise when spring starts. An ever blowing sea breeze offers some cooling during the summer.
