Gaza strip


Little has changed in Gaza since peace activist Rachel Corrie was crushed beneath an Israeli bulldozer 15 years ago

  • Renewed violence in the Gaza Strip after the 15-year anniversary of Corrie's death has left at least 42 Palestinians dead and hundreds injured in the hands of Israeli forces
  • The first Palestinian uprising, or intifada, against Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza lasted from 1987 until 1991 and was followed by a second period of intensified violence from September 2000 to February 2005.
