Any discussion of legal issues related to the Palestinian people must address the laws and customs of international law. The occupied Palestinian territory is subject to customary and conventional international law, including specific conventions applicable to cases of occupation. The most important of these conventions are The Hague Convention Respecting the Laws and Customs of War on Land of 1907 and The Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War of 1949.
