During the Nakba in 1948 alone, over 800,00 Palestinians were driven from their homes, and hundreds of their towns and villages were destroyed.

These people and their descendants alone number over two million today, and Israel has continued a regime of ethnic cleansing in the decades since, killing and deliberately displacing countless more Palestinians.

The Gaza strip is one of the most densely populated areas on earth, measuring 40km long and 9km wide with a population of 1.8 million people.

Since the official "withdrawal" from Gaza in 2006, Israel keeps this strip of land under a permanent state of siege; controlling all passage of people and goods in and out.

Israel prevent nearly any Palestinians who wish to leave or enter the Gaza strip, and regularly bombs various parts of the strip, regularly destroying what little infrastructure exists.

They deliberately make sure to starve Gaza but no so much that they die of hunger because it would be seen as bad for Israeli Public Relations "The idea is put the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger" -Israeli official Dov Weisglass

And when the Palestinians living inside Gaza inevitably protest these conditions? They are deemed "terrorists" and treated as a security threat by the Israeli Defense Force, and killed or deliberately maimed.
