Gaza under siege 40 years after 1973 war

Israel maintains stranglehold over Gaza, decades after Egyptian and Syrian forces attempted to dislodge them.

    Egyptians will be holding nationwide rallies to remember the 1973 Arab-Israeli war.

    It has been 40 years since Egyptian and Syrian forces launched a surprise attack on Israel.

    But the combined force failed to push back Israeli forces from Gaza, where millions remain under siege.

    Al Jazeera's Peter Sharp reports from Gaza city.
