This chapter asks whether the Har Homa project and other Israeli settlements violate either the Oslo Accords or any other source of international law. The first section considers whether the text of the Oslo Accords outlaws new or existing settlements. The second section asks whether the settlements are inconsistent with any other source of law. It argues that the law of belligerent occupation is applicable to territories occupied by Israel in 1967, and that aspects of Israeli settlement policy are inconsistent with occupation law.
