Jean-Pierre Filiu, Professor of History, Sciences Po Paris

Five years ago this week, the Palestinian Islamist group, Hamas, seized control of Gaza after a violent battle with their arch-foes, Fatah. In the meantime, the border between Gaza and Israel continues to be a flashpoint; Palestinian militants fire rockets in southern Israel prompting a harsh military response from the Israelis. Annette Young talks to French historian, Jean-Pierre Filiu who’s just published a book about this tiny sliver of land and its troubled history.
