For many years, locals in the war-torn impoverished coastal enclave have been deprived of Ramadan preparations due to Israeli wars, but this year Gazans are making the most of the start of the holy month with colourful decorations and market visits.
In 2005, former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon evacuated several Israeli settlements in Gaza along with four settlements in the northern occupied West Bank as part of his "unilateral" plan for disengagement.
"Including five players, the team is going to play in an Arabian competition to be held in Morocco next May," the Palestine Football Association for Amputees organisation said in a press statement sent to The New Arab.
Hamas, an Islamist armed group running Gaza, said that “it is the real-time to give the resistance in the West Bank and Jerusalem space and opportunity to lead the confrontation with the Israeli occupation."
The Islamic Hamas movement that controls the besieged coastal enclave said on Thursday that the Israeli occupation is pushing towards war in the Palestinian territories by continuing to commit massacres against the Palestinians.
