Gaza is a small sliver of land between Israel and the Mediterranean Sea, with a tiny slice of land bordering Egypt. It is about the size of New Jersey with more than 1 million people, more than half of them under the age of 18, packed into it. Most are without jobs. The water is undrinkable, food in short supply.
