Description:   Palestine (comprising of the West Bank and Gaza Strip) is located within Israel. There is an ongoing dispute over exactly how much land the Palestinians can get and how much the Israelis will keep. With the building of the controversial wall, this is only going to escalate. Politics aside Palestine has some very important cities and ruins within its territory. The famed walled city of Jericho, Bethlehem and Hebron to name but a few.
