- All cities & villages in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.
- All refugee camps including the camps in Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria.

- All major highways, railways, roads and junctions.
- Several well known concentrations camps.
- Most, if nor all, of the Israeli military installation inclusive of the Israeli nuclear sites.
