A view shows the derelict remains of Gaza International Airport in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, April 27, 2019. Former U.S. President Bill Clinton attended the opening ceremony in 1998. But Israeli air strikes and bulldozers closed it down during the second Palestinian uprising, or Intifada, a few months after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.
