[Official PA TV, From the Refugee Camp, April 17, 2022]

The area of the West Bank and Gaza Strip combined is less than 7,000 sq. km. The figure 27,000 sq. km. is the area of all of Israel (without the Golan Heights) in addition to the West Bank and Gaza. Palestinian children are taught that all of Israel is “Palestine”.

This was filmed in Nuseirat refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.
20 Jordanian dinars is approximately $28.
