Nasser or Hayy al-Nasr is a district in western Gaza City, located adjacent to Rimal and northwest of al-Daraj. It was established in 1957 while the Gaza Strip was under Egyptian control to house the families of soldiers and local volunteers who fought against Israel in the 1948 Palestine War.[1] It was named after the late Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser.
