Israel demolished 41 Palestinian structures in 2 weeks: UN

Israel demolished 41 Palestinian structures in 2 weeks: UN
World  - A United Nations (UN) report says Israeli forces destroyed at least 41 Palestinian-owned structures in the occupied East Jerusalem al-Quds and West Bank over the past two weeks alone.


The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in its biweekly Protection of Civilians Report that most of the demolitions had taken place under the pretext that construction had taken place without a "permit," Palestinian Ma'an news agency reported on Sunday.

Of the demolitions, 37 were in East Jerusalem and four in the so-called Area C of the West Bank, the report said, adding that the destruction directly displaced 38 homeowners and affected 121 others.

On April 29 alone, Israelis authorities destroyed 31 structures in multiple neighborhoods in East Jerusalem al-Quds.

On April 25, the Israelis demolished a home in Az-Zawiya Village in the West Bank, displacing a family of seven, including five children, the report said.

During the full month of April, a total of 70 structures were demolished in the occupied Palestinian territories by Israeli forces, according to OCHA, displacing at least 70 people - including 33 children - and affecting a further 313 people.

In January, OCHA said Israel's demolition and confiscation of Palestinian-owned structures in the West Bank had soared by 10 percent in 2018.
