Settlers and Settlements: May 26, 2012

without comments

In the last year, the Civil Administration opened about three times as many cases for illegal construction against Palestinians than it did against settlers in Area C of the West Bank, which is under Israeli control. This, despite the fact that the settler population of 300,000 is twice as large as the Palestinian population in the area. Further, a database prepared in 2007 shows that almost all settlements build illegally on private Palestinian lands.
