BADIL publishes Occasional Bulletin No. 25: Seam Zones

BADIL Occasional Bulletins aim to provide a brief overview of issues related to the ongoing forcible displacement of the Palestinian people.

Seam zones are sections of Palestinian land within the occupied Palestinian territory which have been isolated as a result of the erection of the illegal Israeli Apartheid Wall, with their location falling in-between the Wall and the 1949 Armistice Line (The Green Line). These pieces of land have been designated by Israel as closed military areas. As a result, Palestinian access to these isolated areas is severely restricted and subjected to an Israeli-controlled permit regime. Statistics suggest that approximately 50,000 Palestinians live in 57 communities within these so-called seam zones. These people are defined internationally as Internally Stuck Persons.
