    Gaza Cityball is the capital city of  Gazaball, which is part of  Palestineball. Before the 2023 Israel–Hamas war, it was the most populous cityball in Palestineball's clay, having 590,481 as of 2017.

    Inhabited since at least the 15th century BCE, Gaza Cityball has been dominated by different peoples and empires throughout its history. The Philistines made it a part of their pentapolis after the ancient Egyptians had ruled it for nearly 350 years. Under SPQRball, Gaza Cityball experienced relative peace, and its Mediterranean port flourished. In 635 CE, Gaza Cityball became the first city in the Palestine region to be conquered by the Rashidun army and quickly developed into a centre of Islamic law. However, by the time the Crusaderballs were established in 1099, Gaza Cityball was in ruins. In later centuries, Gaza Cityball experienced several hardships—from Mongol raids to severe flooding and locust swarms, reducing it to a village by the 16th century, when it was incorporated into Ottomanball's clay. During the first half of Ottoman rule, the Ridwan dynasty controlled Gaza Cityball, and the city went through an age of great commerce and peace. The municipality of Gazaball was established in 1893.

    Gazaball fell to British forces during World War I, becoming a part of Mandatory Palestinecube. As a result of the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, Egyptball administered the newly formed Gaza Stripball, and several improvements were undertaken in the cityball's clay. Gazaball was Anschlussed by Israelcube in the Six-Day War in 1967, and in 1993, the cityball was transferred to the newly-created Palestinian National Authority. In the months following the 2006 election, an armed conflict broke out between the Palestinian political factions of Fatah and Hamas, resulting in the latter taking power in Gazaball. Gaza Stripball was then subject to an Israeli-led Egyptian-supported blockade. Israelcube eased the blockade allowing consumer goods in June 2010, and Egypt reopened the Rafah Border Crossing in 2011 to pedestrians.

    The primary economic activities of Gaza are small-scale industries and agriculture. However, the blockade and recurring conflicts have put the economy under severe pressure. The majority of Gaza's Palestinian inhabitants are Muslim, although there is also a Christian minority. Gazaball can into very young population, with roughly 75% under the age of 25. The cityball is currently de facto administered by a 14-member municipal council controlled by Hamas.

    On 2 November 2023, Israelcube invaded Gaza Cityball in the Siege of Gaza City.

    As of March 2024, as part of the Israel–Hamas war, the Israeli army has bombed large portions Gazaball's clay and surrounding areas of the Northern Gaza Strip, destroying many buildings and infrastructure. Almost all residents have fled or been evacuated to Southern Gazaball, or killed as a result. Therefore, previous recorded or estimated population numbers have become outdated.
