ramallah-palestiniansThe number of West Bank Palestinians who have permanent permits to work in Israel has soared from 33,000 to 48,000 in less than two years and is now at its highest level since the start of the Second Intifada in 2000.

Another 3,000 Palestinians have permission to work temporarily in Israel to help with the olive harvest and 27,000 more Palestinians work in industrial zones and settlements in the West Bank. Another 30,000 work in Israel illegally. Thus, about 100,000 Palestinians rely on jobs in Israel for their livelihood.
