Map of Yehuda and Shomron Map of Yehuda and Shomron, identifying many, but not all, of the yishuvim.

The two cities in Yesha at the time this map was drawn, Ariel and Maale Adumim, are shown by stars, as is Jerusalem.

Almost all the yishuvim and cities shown on the map are predominantly Jewish, the only exceptions being Jenin, Tulkarm, Kalkilya, Nablus (known to Jews as Shechem), Ramallah, Jericho, Bethlehem, and Hebron.

Hebron, considered by many to be the second holiest Jewish site (after Jerusalem), has a large Arab population, but also a strong and vibrant Jewish one.

In addition to the yishuvim and cities shown, there are also large numbers of small to medium size Arab villages (not shown), which results in there being more Arabs than Jews currently living in Yehuda and Shomron.

According to the latest census figures, the Jewish population of Yesha (Yehuha, Shomron, and Gaza) currently is increasing considerably more rapidly than in the remainder of Israel.
