The Geopolitical Status of Bethlehem Governorate

Bethlehem Governorate lies in the southern part of the West Bank south of Jerusalem. It has an area of 658.6 Km2 and is home to 217,400 Palestinian inhabitants (PCBS, 2017). It has been targeted by the Israeli occupation since 1967 when 18.1 Km2 from its lands were unilaterally annexed by Israel to the illegally declared new municipal boundary of Jerusalem. However, since 1967, the owners of the “annexed areas” continued to access their land until the Segregation Wall plan came to existence.
