Huj ( _ar. هوج) is a former Palestinian village located fifteen kilometers northeast of Gaza City. It has been identified as the ancient Philistine town of "Oga". The village is notable for being on the Map of Madaba. [ [http://198.62.75.1/www1/ofm/mad/discussion/113discuss.html Oga - (Huj)] Studium Biblicum Franciscanum - Jerusalem. 2000-12-19.]

Its total land area amounted to approximately 22,000 dunams of which about 3/4 was in Arab ownership while the remaining 1/4 belonged to Jewish owners and the general public. According to a 1945 census, Huj and the nearby town of Dorot had a population of 1,040 inhabitants, of which 240 were Jewish and most Arab.

During the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, Egyptian forces took control of Huj. Israel's Negev Brigade captured the town on May 31, 1948. The town's inhabitants fled toward the Gaza Strip and in 1998 numbered nearly 6,000. [ [http://www.palestineremembered.com/Gaza/Huj/index.html Welcome to Huj] PalestineRemembered]
