Israel's settlers and the Palestinians they live among
Israel's settlements in the occupied West Bank are one of the most heated issues in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Palestinians want the area, captured by Israel in a 1967 war, for a future state.

Ofra is one of the first settlements that Israel established in the West Bank after it captured the territory in 1967 Middle East war. "It's ridiculous to say that Jews can't live here," said Netzer. "The Bible is a part of it. I would ask anybody: Is it so easy to lose your connection to your ancestors and your land? Of course it isn't. For the Jewish people, that history is what made us what we are." REUTERS/Ronen Zvulun SEARCH "SETTLEMENTS WEST BANK" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
