Palestinian territories – encompassing the Gaza Strip and West Bank, including East Jerusalem – have been illegally occupied by “Israel” since 1967.

The estimated population of the West Bank was 3.19 million (1.62 million males and 1.57 million females).
As of 2022, there are over 450,000 Israeli settlers living in 132 Israeli settlements in the West Bank excluding East Jerusalem, with an additional 220,000 Jewish settlers residing in 12 settlements in East Jerusalem.

Palestinians are regularly subjected to violence by Israeli settlers, under the protection of the Israeli occupation army, including physical attacks, shooting with live ammunition, torching of fields and livestock, theft, and vandalization of property.

Israeli occupation forces also perpetrate widespread attacks and atrocities against Palestinians.

More than 871,000 Palestinian refugees live in the occupied West Bank, around a quarter of whom live in 19 refugee camps. Most of the others live in West Bank towns and villages. Some camps are located next to major towns and others are in rural areas.
