Quick Facts

Around 15,000 people live in Dheisheh camp, and was established in 1949
They originate from 45 villages in western Jerusalem and the area west of Hebron
It sits on 0.33 sq km, with an estimated population density of 45,454 per sq km

The Israeli security forces (ISF) fenced in the entire camp during the first intifada, leaving a small turnstile as the only entrance and isolating the camp from the main road between Bethlehem and Hebron. The fence has since been removed, and the turnstile is no longer in use, though it is still visible at the camp entrance. During the second intifada, Israeli forces conducted incursions, house and arrest campaigns, and put the camp under prolonged curfews. Many of Dheisheh’s older male residents were arrested during the first and second intifadas. Despite being under full Palestinian control (Area A), the ISF still conducts frequent incursions and arrests inside the camp. Dheisheh camp has a very active civil society with many community-based organizations (CBOs).
