Hebron, Kentucky Statistic: Population, Charts, Map, Steets and More

The Hebron Governorate has been divided into two sectors: H1 and H2. The Palestinian Authority administers H1, while the Israeli military manages H2. The Jewish settlers have their own governing municipal body. Historically, the Palestinian side of Hebron City was the most heavily populated area. This contrasts sharply with the Israeli side. In the 1980s, this area was the commercial hub of the city. However, after the 1994 massacre, the Israeli government closed Shuhada Street to Palestinians, and the area has become a ghost town.

The city was first incorporated in 1961. The purpose of incorporation was to prevent the annexation of the city by the neighboring cities of Plano and Carrollton. Originally, the city's city limits included only Muslim communities. However, this changed after the Six-Day War. After this conflict, the city was divided into two sections, H1 and H2.

The West Bank consists of Israel and Palestine. The Palestinian territory contains the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The Palestinians and Israelis have claimed Hebron for centuries. Before the creation of Israel, the city was deeply Islamic. This Islamic culture had long been hostile towards Jews. Zionism brought more Jews to the city, and in 1929, the Arabs murdered seventy of them. Survivors were forced to leave the city.

After the 1967 Israeli occupation, the Palestinians and Israelis divided the city. In Hebron, 80% of the city was ceded to the Palestinian Authority. In 1997, Netanyahu implemented the Hebron division. Today, settlers have been allowed to live in this part of the West Bank. However, the settlements are a small part of the city with more than 200,000 Palestinians. There is no way to ensure that the Palestinians live peacefully in the West Bank.
