IDF soldiers who reached the area that was once the Gush Katif town of Netzarim in the Gaza Strip found that a Ferris wheel had been built where there had once been a synagogue.

Arutz Sheva - Israel National News has learned that the entire area was destroyed by the Israeli forces moving into the Gaza Strip.

The synagogue was built and inaugurated in 2001, shortly after the outbreak of the Second Intifada. The synagogue was the site of an emotional protest against the Disengagement Law, featuring numerous prominent figures in the Religious Zionist community of the time.

Netzarim was the last town to be evacuated during the disengagement in 2005.

Following the departure of the last Israeli troops from the region in 2005, the synagogue, along with several others in the abandoned towns of Gush Katif, were torched by Palestinians occupying the vacated regions.
