The OCHA said in a statement ¨this resulted in the displacement of 108 people, including 62 children, and otherwise affected the livelihoods, or access to services, of nearly 2,700 others.
20 of demolished properties had been provided as humanitarian aid. 32 of the structures demolished or seized in June, or 35%, were seized without, or with very short, prior notice.
To implement this policy, Israel uses the argument that these structures do not have a building permit, although Palestinians and human rights organizations and those attached to UN claimed that Tel Aviv imposes requirements that are impossible to meet.
On two separate occasions in the Massafer Yatta area (South Hebron Hills), the Israeli authorities demolished three main roads connecting the surrounding villages, in addition to a water network supplying water to manifold communities.
Under Israeli law, if a Jew proves his family lived in East Jerusalem before the country’s creation in 1948, he can claim ownership, but Palestinians are denied that same right.
