A Short Introduction To The Philately Of Palestine

PNA Post Offices and Postmarks

The following tables list post offices in the occupied territories administered by the PNA from 1994 and the regular and special datestamps used. So far less attention could be afforded to special handstamps and dated and undated cachets. These listings should be taken as preliminirary and not comprehensive; new material is added constantly. You can see the latest additions here.

As there is no authoritative transliteration scheme for Arabic script, pretty much any source (official, unofficial, websites, maps) I have consulted gives differing spellings for Palestinian place names, therefore I note variants wherever feasable.

You can enlarge the postmark images by clicking on them. These images are in the most at 600dpi quality, though some early scans were made with 300dpi only. The measurements (diameter) are to the nearest 1/10 or 1/4 of a millimeter and measure the inner boundaries.

Where an opening date (prior to 1994) is given it refers to offices without any long gap in service since then. Most of that particular information is based on the official list of post offices issued by the Ministry of Telecom & Information Technology. Some opening dates on the MTIT list refer only to offices (not agencies) and some data is not in line with other sources (eg. Wallach). In some instances I have made necessary corrections. Information on Ottoman, Mandate, Jordan/Egyptian, and Israeli military occupation post offices are taken from aricles in philatlic journals on these topics, and further publications. This data is not yet complete and further study is needed.

The Schubert-Zywietz Classification

Thomas Schubert, upon studying hundreds of covers, has developed a systematic classification of PNA datestamps. I have slightly amended Thomas' system and we now propose the following scheme. The scans bewlow are from my and Thomas' collection, complemented by contributions from Paul Phillips, Jan R. Blok, and others. Further images were obtained from the MTIT website (denoted by green borders, sometimes apparently not to scale) and websites like Ebay.

The classification ist still under active consideration. Changes may be made where necessary.
New postmarks are constantly added. If you can contribute any information,
especially better scans (600dpi), please e-mail me!

Global suffixes
Where only one or very few postmarks deviate in some respect from all other marks allocated to a group, a suffix is used to denote this fact. Example: The Bani Zaid mark shown below is part of group III d (no number and block letters). It is listed as III d R because the other postmarks all have serifed letters.

New Datebridge
Some type III postmarks had their datebridge renewed or repaired recently.
The new datebridges have some distinctly different cyphers:

    R.   serifed ("roman") letters
    B.   un-serifed ("block") letters
    C.   curved bottom inscription
    S.   straight bottom inscription
    M.   mixed upper and lower case letters
    L.   large number
    T.   number in top segment

The largest town in the so-called J2 area of Jerusalem Governorate, right in the middle between Jerusalem and Ramallah, near Beit Hanina and Jaba' with a population of 20,359 according to the 2007 Census. Jordanian authorities operated a postal agency between 28.02.1966 and 3.06.1967. An Israeli military occupation force post office existed from 1990. The PNA office was supposedly closed in April 1995, though I have not seen any evidence it ever actually operated. Nearest operating PNA post office is Ber Nabala to the W. The new PNA post office (near al-Fares school in the N of the city) was ceremonially (re-)opened on 10.10.2013.

Other Marks

"Postage Paid" and "Service des Postes" cachets appear very rarely. I show such cachets ansd meter marks separately:

There are also "no service" cachets, saying the the Postal Authority regrets that the letter could not be delivered to Arab countries due to the occupation powers refusing to allow the forwarding. The left image is scaled to the same size as the postmarks on this page; a 250% enlargement is on the right. Below a cover affected, courtesy of Thomas Schubert.

Israel sometimes applies a "PAS DES SERVICE Via ISRAEL" handstamp, here on a letter from Halhul to Kuwait (returned to the sender) in October 2008.

Sometimes mail to Palestine gets mis-directed: the most common route seems to be Pakistan. The ordinary route should be via Israel, but some Post-Office staff apparently put letters just in the next box if they can't have a seperate one for Palestine... These letters finally arrive in Palestine, but on their way receive often a machine-cancellation at Islamabad as well as other marks. Here are two examples of transit marks applied at the International Mail Office:

"RECEIVED AT I.M.O. ISLAMABAD 440 / INWARD SET/01"
