Palestinian Localities Egypt 2008

Description
This polygon dataset represents small Palestinian localities that have grown out of Palestinian populations in the Gaza Strip in 2008. These Palestinian settlements are in the vicinity of Rafah, the border crossing town between the Gaza Strip and Egypt, and are encroaching on Egyptian lands; as such, the settlements have created much tension between Egypt and Gaza.
