A historical term for the Holy Land to Jews, Christians and Muslims, there has long been disagreement over Palestinian land. Palestine has been a UN non-Member state since 2012.
The Palestinian territories include the Gaza Strip, along the Mediterranean coast, and the West Bank, the area west of the Jordan River. Its Arab population rejects claims to the land between those regions by modern Israel, founded in 1948. This is a collection of DW's latest content on the Palestinian territories.
There are more than 130 Jewish settlements in the West Bank alone. Most of the international community, say the Israeli settlements are illegal. But the Israelis living in settlements dont believe they are on occupied territory. Rotem and Efrat live in the settlement Lechem. (Report: Thorsten Teichmann)
The El Habash family live in Nusseirat, in the Gaza strip. But even though most of them were born here, they don't feel at home. Their home, they say, is Ashkelon, thats now in Israel. But its unlikely they will ever live there, on their ancestral land, where Grandfather Mohammed El Habash was born. (Report: Tim Assman)
