I, as a general user, would like to add a bit information to the other
user's comment.
Name of zone in the tz database is not decided according to name given to a
timezone nor is it given to name of a country's capital. Instead it is
named after the most populated city in each zone.

Also, according to my understanding, West Bank and Gaza is separated in
these record because their history of time zone is now exactly identical
from year 1970 onward, which the database is trying to keep record of
history of each and every time zone in existence since year 1970. If you
find there are error on time-keeping history regarding Palestine in the
database then please submit relevant information to the list for correction
of those records.
