A map of the West Bank

The West Bank is the most commonly used secular name used to refer to the ancient Jewish homelands of Judea and Samaria. The region is located in the west bank of the Jordan River near Jerusalem. The land is bitterly disputed between Jewish and Arab settlers in the region. The West Bank has been controlled by Israel since the Six-Day War (1967). The West Bank is not officially part of any country.
