interactive map of the West Bank and Gaza

B'Tselem, the Israeli Information Center for Human Rights, has published an interactive map of the West Bank and Gaza that is dense with information for those who seek an understanding of the intricate layout of areas that have come about over the years of occupation. Where are areas A, B and C? Where is the Green Line, how about East Jerusalem and the settlements? News stories and videos are featured as well, so you can see where something happened and then read in detail about the event.

The map has so much information that it can be difficult to read unless you zoom in. A very wide view will have place-names over-lapping. To see Gaza, you will need to move the map from the initial view that shows only the West Bank. What you see here is only a screen-grab. Follow the link above.
