The living conditions in Palestine and more precisely in the West Bank and in the Gaza Strip are quite diverse. For foreigners, living conditions in Jerusalem or Ramallah are usually good. There are limited restrictions of movement for them in the West Bank with some checkpoints which can close suddenly. In the Gaza strip, the daily life is ok but with strict limitations of movements and regular closure of the passage and bombings. Generally, the situation is considered quite volatile in Gaza and West Bank but the security measures and systems in place generally allow a good and efficient management of the situation.
