Gush Katif was a bloc of 17 Israeli settlements in the southern Gaza strip. In August 2005, the Israeli army carried out the Cabinet's decision and forcibly removed the 8,600 residents of Gush Katif from their homes. Their communities were demolished as part of Israel's unilateral disengagement from the Gaza Strip.
The operation, euphemistically known as the "Disengagement," saw Jews expelled from homes they had lived in for decades in the Gaza Strip after having moved there with the Israeli government's encouragement. It was a one-sided move that resulted in their homes being destroyed, synagogues torched and millions of dollars worth of profitable greenhouses given to the Gazans purposefully wrecked.
