OSLO ACCORDS and maps



OSLO ACCORDS and maps







A cursory view of the map clearly indicates that B and C are inseparable in terms of what we can annex. The Settler’s Plan suggests a swap of some C lands for B lands . This map is as of 1995. Since then there has been considerable construction east of the greenline.  Since this plan will never be accepted, we should just draw  a border line that suits us and just do it.  Thereafter we could negotiate on the rest.  Ted Belman
Oslo II Accords (Interim Agreement on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip – 1995) 
Administrative divisions of the Oslo Accords
From Wikipedia,

The Oslo Accords created three temporary distinct administrative divisions in the West Bank and Gaza Strip until a final status accord would be established. The areas are not contiguous within each other but rather distributed depending on the different population areas as well as Israeli military requirements.

Area ‘A’ – full civil and security control by the Palestinian Authority. This area includes all Palestinian cities and their surrounding areas, with no Israeli settlements. Entry into this area is forbidden to all Israeli citizens. The Israel Defense Forces maintain no presence, but sometimes conducts raids to neutralize militants. This constitutes 2.7% of the land area. [1]

Area ‘B’ – Palestinian civil 
control and joint Israeli-Palestinian security control. Includes areas of many Palestinian towns and villages and areas, with no Israeli settlements. These areas constitute 25.1% of the land area.[1]

Area ‘C’ – Full Israeli civil and security control, except over Palestinian civilians. These areas include all Israeli settlements (cities, towns, and villages), land in the vicinity of these localities, most roadways that connected the settlements (and which Israelis are now restricted to) as well as strategic areas described as “security zones”. These areas constitute 72.2% of the land area.[1]

In 2006, Yesha Council proposed this Plan. You can see how complex it is. Is it workable?
