Palestine
Palestine is an area in the eastern Mediterranean region between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea in Asia. Palestine territories include the Gaza Strip, West Bank, and parts of modern Israel. This region has a strategic location between Jordan in the east, Lebanon and part of modern Israel to the north, Mediterranean Sea to the west, and Negev and Gulf of Aqaba to the South. Syria, Egypt, and the Arabian nations are its neighboring countries.

This region is also occasionally called the Holy Land as it is considered the birth place of Judaism. For Christians also, this place is of great importance mainly because Jesus Christ lived and died here. Historically, this region has been under constant controversy and political instability due to confusion about its boundary with Israel. In November 2012 after a long struggle, the region of Palestine became a non-member observer state of the United Nations. The total area of this region is 6,217 sq. km, including the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. City of Gaza is the largest city in the Gaza Strip and Hebron is the largest city in West Bank region. Centrally located El-Bureij, Beit Lahiya in north Gaza, and Jabaliya in the north are some important regions.

The Palestine region has moderate Mediterranean climate and has limited natural resources. Majority of Palestinian population are Sunni Muslims. Economically, this region has lower economy with many of its people engaged in agriculture and small scale industries.
