The number of Palestinian workers from the West Bank who are employed in Israel and Israeli settlements has increased from 77,000 in the first quarter of this year to 80,000 in the second quarter, according to a report published Wednesday by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics.

Of these workers, only 41,000 had a permit to enter Israel, while 22,000 worked without a permit, the report found.

The number of Palestinians working in Israeli settlements increased from 13,000 in the first quarter of the year to 15,000 in the second quarter, the report said.

The increase comes despite a ban issued by the Palestinian Authority against working in settlements.
