District of Gaza
The District of Gaza was an administrative district, situated in the southern Mediterranean coastline of the British Mandate of Palestine. After the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, the district disintegrated, with Israel controlling the northern and eastern portions while Egypt held control of the southern and central parts - which became the Gaza Strip under the Palestinian National Authority after the Oslo Accords in 1993-1994.
All of the localities captured by Israel were depopulated prior, during or after the 1948 War. Majdal was not destroyed.
