Israel illegal Settlement in West Bank
From 1967 through 2016, over 200 Israeli settlements were established in the West Bank (including East Jerusalem); their current population is almost 600,000. Settlements impinge on Palestinian human rights throughout the West Bank as their influence far exceeds the boundaries of the lands seized to build them: checkpoints that limit Palestinian movement are erected based on where there are settlements; Palestinian are denied access to farmland near settlements; the route of the Separation Barrier was placed inside the West Bank so as to leave as many settlements as possible to the west of it.
