Settlements

Israel’s settlement enterprise has had a devastating effect on the lives of ordinary Palestinians living in the occupied territories. Private Palestinian land is frequently expropriated for the building of settlements. Settlements also separate and isolate Palestinian population centers from one another and from the outside world.
