The aim of this paper is to analyze the applicability of international laws in the West Bank conflict. The first section will focus on the historical aspect of West Bank; what led to the formation and hence occupation of the Palestinian territory which is now known as the West Bank. The second section will focus on the current scenario of the West Bank and its possible (official) annexation by Israel. The third, fourth and the fifth sections will focus on the International Court of Justice Ruling of 2004, The Fourth Geneva Convention and the 1907 Hague Convention. The aforementioned three sections are further divided into three sections; the first subsection focuses on the relevance of the mentioned Convention in the West Bank conflict. The second subsection focuses on the international laws violated as per the mentioned Convention; it consists of a list of Articles violated in the Occupied Palestinian Territory by Israel as mentioned in the Convention. The third subsection focuses on the applicability of the international laws; Did Israel ratify the mentioned Conventions? Did the International Court of Justice’s (ICJ) ruling come into effect? Did the Hague Convention come into effect as it is a customary international law? The drawbacks and limitations regarding the application of international laws, which range from structural issues of the Convention to political involvements, will be analyzed.
