Disputed Territories in Israel

Disputed Territories in Israel

Golan Heights
Mountainous area north-east of the Sea of Galilee. Occupied in 1967 by Israel, unilaterally annexed in 1980, but still claimed by Syria. The annexation of the Golan is not recognized by the United Nations.
Palestinian Territories
Two physically separate territories, the West Bank in the east in the Jordan Valley and the Gaza Strip in the southwest along the Mediterranean coast. Internationally recognized as not part of any country, government services (security, medical service, etc.) are provided by Israel, the Palestinian Authority, or a combination, depending on the exact location as a result of the Oslo Accords.

As these occupied territories are remarkably different from a traveler's point of view, information on travel to and within them can be found under the entries Golan Heights and Palestinian Territories. This is not a political endorsement of claims by any side in the dispute over the sovereignty of these territories.
