Abstract

This study discusses the Israeli policy in Al-Aghwar area, where a de-facto annexation policy is being exercised, by means of allowing the installation of settlements, the exploitation of its water resources to fulfill their needs and the establishment of farms and industries relative to agricultural production and its pre-export preparation.
