Impact on Palestinian human rights

Annexation is likely to lead to further violations of Palestinian human rights, including:

  • Curtailed freedom of movement within the West Bank;

  • Restricted travel abroad;

  • Infringement on Palestinian property rights due to land expropriation or restrictions that make it impossible for Palestinians to access their farmland;

  • Increased demolitions of homes and unrecognised Palestinian villages -- along with the risk of expulsions -- as settlements are expanded within annexed areas;

  • Systemic violence against and abuses of Palestinians;

  • Exclusive Israeli control of natural resources in annexed areas without oversight, restrictions or resource-sharing requirements.
