A new report by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs Research (JCPR) claims Israeli occupation of Palestinian land in the occupied West-Bank has increased significantly in recent years.
The JCPR report, titled Israel’s Occupation of Palestinian Lands: From 1990 to 2010, estimates that between 1,600 and 2,500 settlers have built or occupied land in occupied East Jerusalem and West Jerusalem.
Israel’s occupation of West Bank and East Jerusalem is estimated to be at least three times higher than that of its previous occupation, when Israel occupied the West Bank in 1967 and annexed the Palestinian city of East Jerusalem in 1981.
The report notes that from 1990 to 2011, the number of Israeli settlers living on Palestinian land increased by more than 500 percent, from approximately 200 to more than 2,700 settlers.
Israel has continued to use illegal and often discriminatory policies in East Jerusalem, with Palestinians often being the victims.
For example, in 2015, the Israeli army demolished the home of a Palestinian man whose family lived there, with the family’s home and adjacent land confiscated.
The Israeli occupation and settlement enterprise has also continued to impact Palestinian life in East and West Palestine.
The report notes:In 2016, Israel demolished the house of a man whose father lived there.
In 2017, Israel took away the Palestinian family’s land, including the family home, and destroyed all of their livestock.
In 2018, Israel arrested the family of a woman whose father was arrested for fighting against Israel.
Israel also confiscated the family vehicle and the belongings of the woman’s mother and father.
In 2019, Israel confiscated the Palestinian-owned olive trees that were planted by a Palestinian family.
In 2020, Israel destroyed the Palestinian olive grove in which the family lived.
In 2021, Israel detained the family, including its six-year-old daughter, and confiscated her and her mother’s two sons.
In 2022, Israel dismantled the olive groves and the family house that the family had built on land the family owned in the same area.
In 2023, Israel removed the family family’s livestock, including two goats and one sheep.
In 2024, Israel seized the family farm, which was used by the family for grazing.
In 2025, Israel invaded the family property and took away their land.
In 2025, the family was allowed to return home.
In 2021, the settlers built a new house on land that had been confiscated by the Israeli military in 2017.
The Israeli military said the land belonged to the village of Homa, which is located in the West-Jerusalem district of Ein Dura, the report states.
In 2020, the settlement outpost of Qumran in the southern West Bank village of Beit Ommar was built.
It is located at the southern entrance to the Jerusalem West Bank city of Jenin.
The settlers also built several other settlements in the Palestinian territory, including Nahal Oz, which they declared a “state of the West.”
The settlers also established an outpost in the village Karmiel, which lies approximately five kilometers west of the settlement.
In the settlement of Maale Adumim, settlers built an illegal settlement.
The settlers, however, have said that they did not intend to build an illegal outpost in Maale ADumim.
The settlement is also in the Jordan Valley, which the Israeli government has repeatedly condemned as illegal and illegal settlements.
According to the JCPR, Israeli settlement activity has increased in areas of East and South Jerusalem since the late 1990s, including in Beit Jala, Nabi Saleh, and Ramallah.
The number of settlers living in East Ramallah has increased from less than 300 in 1990 to about 700 in 2011.
The number of Palestinians living in the area has increased by nearly 5,000 from 3,500 in 1990, the JCPS report states, adding that since the end of 2014, about 7,000 Palestinians have been living in Palestinian-populated East Ramah.
The Israel Police also reported a large number of violations of international law and international humanitarian law.
According the report, Israel has committed a number of war crimes, including violations of the Fourth Geneva Convention, the 1949 Geneva Convention on the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, and the 1977 Additional Protocols I and II.
Israel committed violations of Palestinian rights, including arbitrary arrests, detentions, forced displacement, and demolition of homes and crops.
Israel violated international humanitarian and human rights norms by imposing its policies of apartheid and apartheid-like measures against the Palestinian people and their legitimate leaders and representatives.
Israeli occupation and apartheid in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) and its territories is a form of collective punishment that has a severe and systematic impact on the rights and freedoms of the Palestinian population and its leadership.
The government of Israel has been responsible for a wave of violations against the rights of Palestinians in the OPT and other occupied territories since the Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip in 2008.
Israel continues to impose a racist, apartheid regime on the Palestinian civilian population in the Gaza strip
