Thanks. The tz database already predicts that on Saturday, 2016-03-26, at 00:00 
local time, Gaza and the West Bank will jump ahead by an hour. Google Translate 
converts the above web resource (which is in Arabic) to "... will be daylight 
saving in Palestine as of one o'clock on Saturday morning, 03/26/2016, to 
provide the clock 60 minutes ahead". This matches tzdata if "as of one o'clock" 
refers to the time after the transition, not the time before. Does this sound 
good to you?
