Gaza City produces map highlighting local 'must sees'

I can't wait, Now that gaza haza map, I can put it on my list of shitholes of the world I have yet to visit! It's right up there with pakistan, somalia, assghanistan, yemen, Pretty much any Muslim Country!

Do they have a Hamas guided Bus tour? They could tour all the Martirdum sites, and possibly the Qassam rocket facilities, Oh Joy.

The Jerusalem Post

Blockaded by Israel and Egypt, impoverished and subject to Islamic strictures, the Gaza Strip isn’t on the itinerary of most of the world’s tourists, but thahttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gift hasn’t deterred Gaza City from producing a map highlighting local "must sees."

The map, which debuted this week, is the brainchild of students and lecturers at the Geography Department of the city’s University College of Applied Sciences (UCAS). Besides documenting its archaeological and tourist sites, the map includes practical information such as hospitals and government buildings. Funded by the Bank of Palestine, the English-language map is handed out free of charge...

Shurrab said there are enough tourists in the city, and plenty more visiting political activists to justify creating the map. Until now, the only tool available for them to navigate the city was a printout from Google Maps, which he said isn’t detailed enough.
