Gaza International Airport, Gaza strip

Also known as Yasser Arafat International Airport, this airport served the Gaza strip. Opened in 1998, 700,000 passengers passed though it a year, but not for long. In December 2001 Israeli forces shelled its radar station and control tower, putting it out of action. A few weeks later, they bulldozed the runway.
