Palestinian National Authority
Current local time in Jerusalem: Monday, May 20 - 2013 - 17:24:12
The Palestinian territories of Gaza and the West Bank have been at the centre of more than half a century of dispute over the legality of the occupation of neighbouring land by the state of Israel. Gaza also has a border with Egypt, while Jordan shares a border with the West Bank.
Eastern Jerusalem is claimed as the capital city of the Palestinian territories but the seat of the Palestinian Authority is in Ramalla, and for day-to-day purposes this is the administrative capital.
Prospects for a final territorial settlement between the Palestinians and Israel look brighter at the time of writing than for sometime but predictions in such matters are fraught with hazard.
