Here is more about the Israel territorial history in the zone.tab:

Looking at
shows the oldest file having the Gaza Strip as part of Israel
+IL  +3146+03514  Asia/Jerusalem  most locations
+IL  +3130+03428  Asia/Gaza  Gaza Strip
it says "Arthur David Olson authored 17 years ago" on the page (2013 -
17 = 1996)

Looking at
shows that Gaza is changed to country code "PS"
it says "Arthur David Olson authored 15 years ago" on the page (2013 -
15 = 1998)

So, after Gaza has been fixed, Jerusalem could be too.
