International Palestine Summit 2018 | CALL FOR PAPER
The Israeli settlements in the West Bank, which began with the occupation of Palestine by Israel, is expanding day by day and has increased in a way never seen before. Within the regional and international conjuncture, the Israeli government is reforming a reality that can not be changed in the West Bank. These settlement clusters established by Israel gradually expanded to villages and cities belonging to Palestinians and separated these villages and cities from each other.
 
However, the West Bank Barrier, which Israel is still conties to build and claimed to be built because of security concern, has caused the West Bank to be an open prison, causing too much damage here hard to be repaired. This distinction, which has created political, economic and sociological problems in Palestine, has continued to be built despite the reactions of international public opinion and systematically the West Bank territory's connection with the outside world has now been cut off both physically and psychologically.
