The Israeli government utilises multiple means in a systematic fashion to illegally annex an increasing amount of Palestinian land for continued Israeli development beyond its official borders. This report focuses on the land and resource annexation project being undertaken by Israel within Area C of the West Bank, in the occupied Palestinian territories (oPt), and uses this to explore the wider Israeli state intent. Primarily, Israeli state expansion policies emphasise rural development as a primary tool for territorial and resource colonisation.
