The population in Judea and Samaria now makes up more than half a million people and crosses a major threshold. Community leaders predicted even faster population growth under Israel’s new ultranationalist government.

WestBankJewishPopulationStats published the report which is based on official figures that showed the population grew to 502,991 as of Jan. 1, rising more than 2.5% in 12 months and nearly 16% over the last five years.

The stats report is compiled by Former Member of Knesset Yaakov “Ketzaleh” Katz (National Union Party). In some years, Ketzaleh publishes an additional 6-month report after June 30.
