Topic - Palestinian Territories
The Palestinian territories or occupied Palestinian territories (OPT or oPt) comprise the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and the Gaza Strip. Since 1993, following the Oslo Accords, parts of the territories politically came under the jurisdiction of the Palestinian National Authority; since 2007, the Gaza Strip did violently split from the Palestinian Authority, governing the area of Gaza independently since. Israel still exercises full Israeli civil control over 61 % of the West Bank (Area C) and military control over all Palestinian territories. - Source: Wikipedia
