This complete, interactive map of the West Bank and Gaza includes information about Palestinian communities and Israeli settlements, checkpoints, the separation barrier, agricultural gates in the separation barrier, settlement zones in East Jerusalem, etc. Plus ongoing B’Tselem reports and video clips, organized by location.
This comprehensive map depicts the updated route of the separation barrier, checkpoints, Palestinian localities, and settlements and settlement outposts in the West Bank.
The map shows the area surrounding the settlement of Ma’ale Adumim, the route of the Separation Barrier that creates an enclave linking the settlement to Israel, and the E1 compound where Israel is planning construction to achieve a contiguous built-up bloc connecting Ma’ale Adumim to Jerusalem.

This policy breaks up Palestinian territory and isolates Palestinian communities in the area. More on the topic
Israel’s regime of occupation is inextricably bound up in human rights violations. B’Tselem strives to end the occupation, as that is the only way forward to a future in which human rights, democracy, liberty and equality are ensured to all people, both Palestinian and Israeli, living between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.
