The actual geographical boundaries of Gaza are the same, it's just getting more and more concentrated in population; perhaps the most densely populated area on Earth, with a most dysfunctional infrastructure 'thanks' to Israeli intransigence and permanent militarism and repeated military attacks.
As far as Gaza being the largest outdoor prison, some have actually argued that our own beloved Islamic Republic of Hell is the largest outdoor prison in the world, and there are some merits for such a claim.
Not only in terms of geographical size but also in terms of the demography. Half of Iran's population, that is all of Iranian women (around approximately 40,000,000) are subjected to strict Gender-Apartheid and not only they can't leave the country without the permit of a male relative, all the movements of Iranian women inside Iran are also closely monitored and codified, including but not limited to; Hejab enforcement, prevention from attending sporting events,...
Besides Iranian women there are also Iranian national and religious minorities who also have been subject to repression and restrictions on their mobility in the past three decades.

Below is a picture of Iraqi women in Tehran (two days ago) attending a sporting event at Dastgerdy stadium. Paradox is that Iranian women were forbidden to attend that same event in our own country.
