Palestine: Israeli Settlements

Since the occupation of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem by Israel in 1967, hundreds of illegal settlements (the blue triangles) have been built in violation of the Geneva Conventions and United Nations resolutions. The USA has vetoed many United Nations resolutions condemning these settlements and has financed their building.

This is a 2002 map. The number of settlements (actually they are better described as "colonies") has continued to increase even after the Oslo Accords of the early 1990s.
