Source of Information:

The figures for 1967 to 1982 are taken from the reply of Minister of Defense Ariel Sharon to a parliamentary query of MK Mordechai Virshubski, 1983 Knesset Records 95, p. 1145. The figures refer to deportation orders that had been issued. The figures for 1982-1987 are based on the 17 December 1992 press release of the Palestinian organization PHRIC, and refer to the number of individuals actually deported.

Figures for the period since the beginning of the intifada are B'Tselem's statistics, and refer to the number of individuals actually deported.
