PALESTINE - GAZA STRIP

Gaza  The Gaza Strip ( Arabic: قطاع غزة Qiṭāʿ Ġazzah), or simply Gaza, is an exclave region of the State of Palestine on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea that borders Egypt on the southwest for 11 kilometers (6.8 mi) and Israel on the east and north along a 51 km (32 mi) border. Gaza is part of the Palestinian territories, which also includes the West Bank and are claimed by the State of Palestine.
The territory is 41 kilometers (25 mi) long, and from 6 to 12 kilometers (3.7 to 7.5 mi) wide, with a total area of 365 square kilometers (141 sq mi). With around 1.8 million Palestinians on some 360 square kilometers, Gaza is among the regions with the highest population density in the world. Moreover, a substantial part of the territory is depopulated because of the imposition of a large buffer zone, maintained by Israel within the Gaza border. Gaza region Posses Own Postal administration and Regional stamps .




This is my first Registered Airmail covers from Gaza Region of Palestine with 'State of Palestine' stamps. Usually Israel Post will not allow these stamps on covers to international letters because  they considered it is a territory of them. Luckily my two airmail covers The covers posted on October 25, 2015 from Rafah, received on November 11,2015 . My good friend Hazem helped to get back the covers in a perfect way. The stamps are gifted by Hassan ,my another friend from Gaza. Thank You Hassan and Hasem for the big help.

This is my another beautiful cover sent by Hazem with 'Palestinian Authority' Stamps. Thank You Hazem


Finally Gaza region of Palestinian Territory also started to issue own stamps in the name of 'State of Palestine'.
