Lots of State Land

From a dirt road story:-

Most West Bank settlements are surrounded by fencing, but lying beyond the fences there is often considerable state-owned land,* and the shift in policy would enable the Civil Administration to keep Palestinians off this land by giving access to security vehicles from the settlements, in an effort to keep the West Bank’s Arab residents from encroaching on the land.

So, there is a lot of land area that is not privately-owned.

Thank you, Haaretz.


Article 6.

The Administration of Palestine, while ensuring that the rights and position of other sections of the population are not prejudiced, shall facilitate Jewish immigration under suitable conditions and shall encourage, in co-operation with the Jewish agency. referred to in Article 4, close settlement by Jews, on the land, including State lands and waste lands not required for public purposes.
