Palestine is a country located in the Middle East. It’s bordered by Jordan to the north, Israel to the west and east, and Egypt to the south. Palestine is home to a variety of cultures and religions. The country is also known for its natural resources, which include oil, gas, minerals, and water. After centuries of European colonization, Palestine became an independent state in 1948. The Palestinians have been struggling for independence from Israel ever since. In 2011, the Palestinians won their first international election through the use of a peaceful boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign. Palestine tourism is one way that Palestinians are fighting for their right to self-determination and equal treatment with other countries.
