YESHA in Numbers
My Right Word
Four (4) cities.
Six (6) regional councils.
Thirteen (13) local councils.
One-hundred and forty (140) communities.
Three hundred and forty thousands (340,000) resident revenants.
We are living on land that equals 21% of the land mass of Israel which equals no more than 3% of the total land mass of Judea and Samaria. We have 48,000 dunams (12,000 acres) under agricultural development, growing olive groves, fruit trees, vineyards and organic vegetables.
The mountains of Judea and Samaria reach a height of 1100 meters and under the ground are the 3 aquifers that provide 50% of the water for the state of Israel.
There are 20 national parks in the area, visited by over 1,000,000 persons annually.
Eighty percent (80%) of all the events and occurrences of the Bible narrative took place in this area.
There are 45 graves and other sites of Jewish sacred importance.
Seventeen thousand (17,000) persons are employed in industrial and agricultural workplaces of whom, 11,000 are Arabs, in 800 factories and workshops in 14 industrial parks.
And come back next year for better numbers.
Comment: Actually the total land mass of the Israeli citizens living in Judea and Samaria is about 2% of the total land mass of the unregistered space.
