Gaza

Gaza was an ancient city of the Philistines. It was built on a hill about 150 feet (45 meters) above sea level, about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) from the Mediterranean Sea. In ancient times, it was a walled city of about 200 acres (80 hectares).

The modern Palestinian city built on the same site is called Gaza City and is the principal town in the Gaza Strip.
