The Gaza and West Bank are ending DST Thursday at midnight (2013-09-27 
00:00:00) (one hour earlier than last year and current rule in tzdata).

This source in English, says "that winter time will go into effect at 
midnight on Thursday in the West Bank and Gaza Strip":
and also mentions it here:

The official source and this other source in Arabic, with Google 
Translate translates to "Friday night", we assume this English source 
was based on this government source, and that midnight between Thursday 
and Friday is correct:
