The Oslo Accords
The Oslo Accords were finalized in Oslo, Norway on August 20, 1993, and subsequently officially signed at a public ceremony in Washington D.C. on September 13, 1993, with Mahmoud Abbas signing for the Palestine Liberation Organization and Shimon Peres signing for the Nation of Israel.

In essence, the accords called for the withdrawal of Israeli forces from parts of the Gaza Strip and West Bank and affirm the Palestinian right to self-government within those areas through the creation of the Palestinian Authority. Gaza was handed over to the Palenstinians.

Zephaniah's Prophecy
Zephaniah 2:4 For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.

In the book of Zephaniah the prophet is speaking about the day of the Lord's anger. The coming war in Israel. The first prophecy in Zephaniah has already been fulfilled. It is interesting to note that two of the cities mentioned
here have been restablished in this century and one that was hidden has been discovered again.

"Gaza shall be forsaken" This has already happened

"and Ashkelon a desolation"
Ashkelon was the oldest and largest seaport in ancient Canaan, one of the "five cities" of the Philistines. Ashkelon became one of the five Philistine cities that were constantly warring with the Israelites and the kingdom of Judah. - Jeremiah 25:20

During 1949, the town was renamed Migdal Gaza, and then Migdal Gad. Soon afterwards it became Migdal Ashkelon. In 1953 the nearby neighborhood of Afridar was incorporated and the current name Ashkelon was adopted

"they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day"
Ashdod is a city in the Southern District of Israel. On May 1st, 1956 then finance minister, Levi Eshkol, in the name of the governement, gave confirmation for the establishing of Ashdod city.The port of Ashdod is the biggest in Israel, carrying about 60% of cargoes.Other important industries are Eshkol electrical power station and oil refinery (one of two in the country)

It makes sense that the shall drive out Ashdod - Important city.

"Ekron shall be rooted up."
Excavations in the temple complex at Tel Miqne in 1996 recovered a significant artifact for the corpus of Biblical archaeology, a dedicatory inscription of the 7th century "king" of Ekron 'Akish. The inscription now securely identifies the site as Ekron. The city of Ekron is mentioned in the Book of Joshua but the exact location of the city remained a mystery until 1996.

Scriptures
Zephaniah 2:4 For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.
