Inner Ring

Settlement belt in East Jerusalem within the expanded Israeli municipal boundaries. It is made up of state-authorized settlement neighborhoods built on confiscated Palestinian land. Surrounding the Core Ring of settlements in and around the Old City, the Inner Ring is connected through an infrastructure of roads and tunnels, and extends from the southeastern settlement of Gilo, north of Bethlehem, all the way to the northern industrial settlement of Atarot, south of Ramallah.
