A look at the colour-coded system of Palestinian population control that has remained in place in Israel for five decades; it still affects everything from freedom of movement to family unity.



Freedom of movement for Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, especially over the past 25 years, has been heavily restricted between these territories, where separation is "the rule and access is the rare exception", Marmur said.

It is illegal for a Palestinian in the occupied West Bank to travel to Gaza and Jerusalem unless they have a special travel permit from Israel. Likewise, Palestinians in Gaza are forbidden from going to Jerusalem and the West Bank unless the Israeli military issues them a permit.
