Iraq Al Manshiyya was a Palestinian Arab town located 32 km northeast of Gaza City. The Israeli Defense Forces intimidated the inhabitants to flee. According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, a kibbutz named Gat was established in 1941 on lands that traditionally belonged to the village; it took over additional lands after the expulsion of the villagers. In 1954 Qiryat Gat was established on village land.
