Greek Orthodox Christians in Gaza

Hundreds of Christians have left the territory for abroad in recent decades.

    Following a meeting in the Vatican, Roman Catholic bishops have urged Israel to stop displacing Palestinians, saying that religion is not a basis for settlement construction.

    The bishops were attending a summit on the plight of Christians in the Middle East, and the statement will strike a chord in Gaza, with one of the oldest Christian communities.

    The Greek Orthodox Church is just one of several Christian denominations in the Gaza Strip less visible than its counterpart in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
