The region of Judea and Samaria is considered by international law as territory subject to belligerent occupation. In accordance with the restrictions of international law, the legislation which applies is the same as that implemented prior to the IDF's presence. Only necessary amendments were made by use of legislation on the part of the regional governor (security provisions) in order to maintain safety and security in the region. The law applied in the region includes Ottoman law, the British Mandate Legislation and Jordanian Law, in so far as applied prior to 1967. Diverse legal amendments are made under the framework of security legislation, according to security and civilian needs. In addition, public international law, partial Israeli law (by means of applying extra territorial provisions) and also indirectly Israeli administrative law are also applied in the territory.
