Read http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Gaza and talk to Peter Miller 
who was, I believe, involved in obtaining the aerial photography for Gaza.

I have a hunch that some suppliers of aerial photography are willing to 
make a trade: they hand us their imagery, we hand them whatever we trace 
from the images under a no-strings-attached license. This would 
basically mean that during such a project, the imagery would be made 
available to selected persons only, and these have to agree that 
everything they trace is dual licensed (OSM plus special rights for 
those who gave use the images).

It's always better to convince them to simply hand over the images and 
take the data from OSM afterwards, of course.
