Greater Jerusalem Access, Movement, and Restrictions in OCHA Maps

Since the establishment of the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affaire (UNOCHA) in 2002, the office took the responsibility of producing the Atlas for the occupied Palestinian territory. The fifth edition of the Humanitarian Atlas* aims to visualize and depict the humanitarian situation on the ground through a combination of baseline, thematic and closure and access maps. Jerusalem Governorate (whose boundaries are defined by the PA and the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics) and East Jerusalem maps portray the complexity of a series of artificial system and a regime created by the Israeli Authority to restrict the movement of Palestinians.
