Gaza Post-Gaza

Israeli authorities allowed a 300 permits to Palestinian Christians in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday to travel to Jerusalem and the West Bank to mark Orthodox Easter. Permissions came after Israeli authorities have prevented Gazans Christians from travelling.

Although most of the Christians sects marked Easter on Sunday, Orthodox Christian communities observe the holiday on April 28.

Noteworthy, Christians in Gaza most belong to the Greek Orthodox community and will mark the holiday on the latter day.
