The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the world’s most enduring hostilities that has roots in the historic claim to land which lies between the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River.
Gaza is a self-governing Palestinian territory that is ruled by the Palestinian militant group Hamas. Various attempts have been made to resolve the conflict as part of the “Israeli-Palestinian Peace Protest” but things have recently escalated in mid-April 2021, resulting in the deaths of many civilians and children.
