People living on the West Bank turned their clocks back one hour at midnight (00:00) local time between Thursday, September 29, and Friday, September 30, 2011, ending daylight saving time (DST).

DST clock changes worldwide.

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.
