The climate of West Bank (Palestinian Territories)
Together with the Gaza Strip the West Bank forms the Palestinian Territories. The West Bank borders Jordan in the east and Israel in the west, north and south. The area used to be known as Palestine and was under the authority of Great Britain until it was annexed by Transjordan. Later on the area was conquered by Israel during the six day war. Several agreements were made when the UN interfered. One of these agreements states that the Israeli settlements in this area are illegal. However, these sites have never been evacuated. In 2003 Israel built the controversial West Bank Barrier which had to prevent suicide attacks. Only a handful of Palestinians are allowed to pass this barrier at set times. This has caused some areas to be left completely isolated and dependant on the supply of goods, medical care and food. The West Bank has a Mediterranean climate with mild winters in which subzero temperatures are uncommon. During spring and autumn heavy rainfall is not uncommon. However, temperatures remain pleasantly mild during these seasons. When spring starts temperatures rapidly increase. Summers are warm and dry. An ever blowing sea breeze offers some cooling.
