The situation in Palestine under the ongoing Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the continued siege of Gaza shows no signs of improvement. Israeli settlements, which are defined as illegal by international law and the Fourth Geneva Convention are causing more and more despair by Palestinians, who continue to lose more of their land. Likewise, the engineering of space and an unfair allotment of resources, deliberately orchestrated road systems for two different people, threats of annexation of the Jordan Valley, have increased the despair Palestinians feel for not having a sovereign state. The disparity of access to COVID-19 vaccinations and medical treatment between Israelis and Palestinians is exacerbating the suffering of the Palestinian people in the Occupied Territories.

What are the hopes for progress towards peace given the new US administration?
