Hothouses in Morag.
Morag, was the southernmost settlement in Gush Katif. It was first established on 29 May 1972, as a non-religious pioneer Nahal military outpost, and demilitarized when turned over to residential purposes in 1982. It later became a religious agricultural worker cooperative, whose residents earned their living growing flowers and vegetables in hothouses. At the time of the evacuation, there were about forty families including about 200 people.
On the ruins of the former village, an Arab locality has been announced called Sheikh Khalifa City. The site named after United Arab Emirates President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan due to his funding of the project.
