Israeli settlements and their impact on Palestinians in the Jordan Valley- an oxfam briefing

August 2012

The Jordan Valley, in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, has the
potential to be the breadbasket of any future Palestinian state. However,
the persistent expansion of Israeli settlements and other restrictions on
Palestinian development have made life extremely difficult for Palestinian
communities. New plans to increase the land, water, and infrastructure
available to Israeli settlements will further aggravate this already serious
situation. Unless the international community takes action to reverse
Israeli government policies and practices, the prospects for the future
establishment of a viable Palestinian state, living side by side with Israel
in peace and security, look dangerously remote.
