Why is there dispute between Israel and Palestine?
This conflict has been going on in this area of the Middle East for at least 100 years. There is dispute over areas like West Bank, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights. Palestine claims these areas including East Jerusalem. At the same time, Israel is not ready to give up its claim on Jerusalem.
Gaza Strip is between Israel and Egypt. This place is currently under the control of Hamas. This is an anti-Israel group. In September 2005, Israel withdrew its forces from the Gaza Strip. In 2007, Israel imposed several restrictions on this area. Palestine says that an independent Palestine state should be established in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
