Israeli Settlement Policy in the West Bank

B'Tselem's report analyzes the means Israel has used to gain control of land to build settlements in the West Bank. Some half a million Israelis currently live beyond the Green Line; of these, more than 300,000 live in 121 settlements and some 100 outposts, which together control 42 percent of the West Bank. The video illustrates the methods used to take over land of the Bil’in village for the settlement Modi’in Illit.

The figures do not include fatalities in the Gaza Strip and Israel during Operation Protective Edge (8 July 2014 through 26 August 2014). These figures will be added once the relevant investigations are complete.
