Geographic sub-regions of Judea and Samaria: Shomron, Yehuda (with Gush Etzion), Binyamin and Bik'at Ha'Yarden, shown on the map of the West Bank.

The Israeli settlements in the West Bank make up the Judea and Samaria District. Authority for planning and construction in this area is held by the Israel Defense Forces Civil Administration. Since Israeli civil law does not apply to the West Bank, settlers in the area are theoretically subject to martial law. In practice, however, settlers are generally judged in civil courts within Israel proper. The district consists of four cities, thirteen local councils and six regional councils. At the start of the 2010s there are over 350,000 Israeli settlers living in the West Bank, with the most dense parts clustered along the north-south-running mountainous spine where also the Palestinian cities of Nablus, Ramallah, Bethlehem and Hebron are located – the major Israeli population centres being Ariel (Shomron), Ma'ale Adumim (the eastern part of the Jerusalem Metropolis extending to the Judean Desert) and Betar Illit (Gush Etzion).
