Abstract:

Recently, the attention of the world has focused on the belligerent occupation of territory seized by Israel after the six day war in 1967. While the major concern has been with Israeli practices relating to human rights, there has also been the broader problem of Israeli economic practices in the occupied territories. With the increased importance of oil in 1974, it was inevitable that Israeli practices relating to the oil fields of the occupied territory would be brought into sharp focus. This article focuses on the problem of protecting natural resources in territory held by force of belligerent occupation. The problem is discussed in the context of the belligerent occupants right to the use and disposition of such natural resources, without regard to the issue of the lawfulness of the occupation.
