 Israeli illegal settlement Yitzhar

Yitzhar is an Israeli settlement located in the West Bank south of the city of Nablus just off Route 60, north of the Tapuach Junction. The predominantly Orthodox Jewish community with a population of 895 (2009) is within the municipal jurisdiction of the Shomron Regional Council. Under the terms of the Oslo Accords of 1993 between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization, Yitzar was designated Area "C" under full Israeli civil and security control.


The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this. According to a Peace Now report of 2006, 35 percent of the land Yitzhar is built on, is privately owned, all or most of it by Palestinians. Settlements on privately owned Palestinian land are illegal according to international and Israeli law.


The inhabitants of Yitzar have a reputation as being among the most extreme Israeli settlers and regularly clash with members of the Israeli security forces and local Palestinian civilians. The settlement is at the forefront of the settler movement's so called "price tag" policy which calls for attacks against Palestinians in retaliation for actions of the Israeli government against West Bank settlements.
