The Gaza Subdistrict (Arabic: قضاء غزة‎) was one of the subdistricts of Mandatory Palestine. It was 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.
