Weather of Arabia - Gaza witnessed many nations who resided there from the East to the West, and its name changed with the change of the nations that struggled in it and over it.
The word “Gaza” in the Arabic language carries various meanings. For example, when we say “he singled out, he singled out so-and-so,” we mean the distinction and uniqueness of so-and-so with this particularity. When we say, “He invaded so-and-so with so-and-so,” it means that he singled out so-and-so for a certain thing, making him distinctive among his companions.
Also, the term “invasion” refers to waging war against a specific enemy or people, and carries in its meaning the idea of force, as any military action cannot be described as a “invasion” unless it is supported by force, and there is no invasion without force.
Gaza also means “strength,” “treasures,” or “stores,” and all of these terms include the idea of strength. Treasures represent material power through their financial value, and stores carry within them power that can accommodate and store valuable items or things of great price.
