The UN considers the Gaza Strip to be occupied by Israel, along with the West Bank and Golan Heights, because Israel controls the movement of people and goods in and out of the territory and has imposed a land, air and sea blockade.

  • Israel argues that it no longer occupies Gaza because it withdrew its soldiers and settlers in 2005 and does not govern the Strip.
