Why not accept Abbas? And West Bank is more common than West Banks.

It's the West Bank not the West Banks. And... you accept "Mah" for Mahmoud Abbas but not Abbas? The clue about the Intifada doesn't make it immediately clear what you're looking for, though eventually I figured out you wanted the date it started. And you should probably accept "Al Nakba" for "Nakba." Other than that not too bad.

Probably accept naqba too. 6 day war. The War of Independence actually started before Israel's independence in 1947, pretty much on the agreement of the UN Partition Plan when neighbouring Arab countries invaded to try and prevent the creation of the Jewish state.

Surely the biggest part of Historical Palestine is Jordan, followed by Israel. Gaza and the West Bank is a very small part of it. All these parts still remain.

It wasn't a war ON Gaza, it is best described as a Gaza War, it wasn't just in Gaza, Hamas didn't fire rockets at themselves, and it wasn't a war with Gaza since that would imply Israel attacked Gaza rather than the other way round with non-stop indiscriminate bombing of civilian areas in southern Israel.

Some corrections:

1. Capitalize all answers.

2. Allow six day war instead of six days war, as that is the correct name.

3. Specify that Hamas specifically was the winner of the election in Gaza, and that Abbas controls the West Bank.

4. Egypt, to my knowledge, didn't control Gaza. It was controlled by the Ottomans, then the British, then the Israelis, and now the Palestinians. I don't think that Egypt ever garnered control that far out of the mainland.
