Palestine is an area of the eastern Mediterranean, including parts of present-day Israel and the Palestinian territories of the Gaza Strip (along with the seashore of the Mediterranean Sea) and the West Bank (west of the Jordan River).
The word Palestine descends from the Greek word, “Philistia,” which relates to the Philistines who conquer this part of the Middle East in the twelfth century BCE.
Nowadays, despite its small size Palestine like in ancient times, continues to play a notable role in politics because it is an essential geographic intersection between Aisa and Africa. Moreover, Palestine is also perceived as the Holy Land sacred for Christians, Muslims, and Jews. Today, the Arab people of Palestine have a solid wish to create a sovereign state.
