Gaza-Sinai Terrorist Threat to Israel and Egypt
The Gaza Strip is a Palestinian enclave bordered on its south by Egypt, north and east by Israel and on the
west by the Mediterranean Sea. Gaza would be part of the future Palestinian state envisioned by the Oslo
peace process. However, the Hamas terror organization that is affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood controls
Gaza and rejects the concept of peace with Israel. Despite repeated reconciliation efforts, Hamas and
Gaza remain estranged from the mainstream Fatah movement that controls the West Bank.
