What’s wrong with this picture ?
Yes, that’s right. There’s no mention of the Gaza Strip or the West Bank.
Besides blurring the land boundaries, it seems that Israel is also blurring the maritime and sub-sea borders into the bargain.
This is the official map of the Eastern Mediterranean region :-
Yet you would be forgiven for thinking that the West Bank is fully under Palestinian control :-

Here’s the geology of the region :-
And here’s a diagram of the Natural Gas fields that have been explored, which you will notice lie roughly on the first fault out from the coast marked on the geological map :-
A Natural Gas field does not magically stop at an international maritime border, as suggested by these three maps :-
It must be concluded that Israel are pumping Gazan gas and claiming it as their own :-
Meanwhile, Gaza continues to have poor energy services :-
Gazans are not even allowed to sail out to their own Natural Gas fields because of the enforced naval blockade :-
