Back to Standard Time

The West Bank’s return to standard time also ended the unusual one-hour time difference from the Gaza Strip.

The Gaza Strip and the West Bank are now both on Eastern European Time, currently one hour behind the rest of Israel, which will end DST at 2am (02:00) local time on Sunday, October 2, 2011.
