Yesha (Hebrew: יש"ע) is a Hebrew acronym for "Judea, Samaria Gaza" (Hebrew: יהודה שומרון עזה, "Yehuda Shomron 'Azza", also known as the West Bank and Gaza Strip), and is one of a number of terms used to describe the areas occupied by Israel as a result of the Six-Day War of June 1967. Israel left the Gaza Strip in 2005. Other acronyms used by Israelis for the West Bank portion are Shai (ש"י Shomron VeYehuda - Samaria and Judea), and Ayosh (איו"ש Ezor Yehuda VeShomron - Judea and Samaria Area).
