 Israeli-occupied territories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The territories are often collectively refered to as simply "the Occupied Territories," although this term is also sometimes loosely used to refer to the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, over which Israel and the Palestinian Authority have sporadically negotiated.
Both of these territories were part of former British Mandate of Palestine, and both have populations consisting primarily of Arab Palestinians, including historic residents of the territories and refugees who lost their homes in the territory that became Israel after the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.
From their capture in 1967 until 1993, the majority of people living in these territories —those who are not Israeli citizens — were subject to Israeli military administration without the benefits of Israeli citizenship: in particular the right to vote in Israeli elections.
