The Israeli settlement policy and its consequences
Israeli settlement policy began after the Six-Day War in 1967, when Israel conquered territories such as the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Israel began building settlements in these areas, which are considered occupied territories. The settlements are communities inhabited and administered by Israelis, and they are often heavily fortified.
