Control of the area of the eastern Mediterranean Sea has changed so many times from the ancient world to the modern world. Basically the areas now called Samaria, Judea and Israel were once controlled by Alexander the great. Later the area was controlled by ancient Rome. At one time the Ottoman Turks controlled it. Prior to even the great Alexander, however, the area was part of the state of Israel.

Why are the Palestinians often referred as refufees?

At various times the Palestinian people are referred to as refugees. In some cases it's a clear and correct choice. Many Palestinians live as refugees in Jordan or in Gaza. Also, the Palestinians are living in land they claim as their own, that would be Israel. Although they live in a territory they believe is their homeland, the area is now technically speaking, and that's also a reality, living in a nation that is controlled by the Israeli government. In that sense, they could be called refugees. With all that said, the Palestinians living outside of Israel are refugees. As an aside, the term Palestine, is a name given to that territory by the Romans, when they controlled the eastern Mediterranean Sea. They had dispersed the Jews living there as a punishment for the "problems" they caused to the Roman empire under Hadrian.
