Gaza and West Bank in timely dispute

    Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank have found another subject to argue over.

    As of this week, the two are now separated by an hour – not in terms of how long it takes to travel from one to the other, but in terms of time.

    Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, moved the clocks back an hour at the beginning of Ramadan to make the fast easier.

    The West Bank did the same, but the Palestinian Authority decided to return to Daylight Saving Time last week after the month ended.

    The time difference has caused complications for residents, with many Gazans who are sympathetic to the Palestinian Authority refusing to observe "Gaza time"
