    * asia: Palestine observed DST starting March 29, 2013. (Thanks to
        Steffen Thorsen.)  From 2013 on, Gaza and Hebron both observe DST,

        to the first Friday on or after September 21 at 01:00. Also, fix
        some historical data for Palestine to agree with that of

        permanent, by moving the end of DST to the 4th Sunday in March every
        year. (Thanks to Carlos Raul Perasso.)
