Over 10,000 Palestinian structures under demolition orders: UN

7.9.15

Over 10,000 Palestinian structures under demolition orders: UN: [middleeasteye.net] "While only a minority of the orders issued are executed, these orders do not expire and leave affected households in a state of chronic uncertainty and threat," it said.

"Where the orders are implemented, they have resulted in displacement and disruption of livelihoods, the entrenchment of poverty and increased aid dependency."

The report cites data from the Israeli authorities relating to the West Bank zone under full Israeli control, known as Area C and covering 60 percent of the territory.

Area C is an administrative region created under the Oslo accords in 1995. Data cited prior to 1995 in the report refers to locations that would later become part of Area C.

Between 1988 and 2014, Israel issued more than 14,000 demolition orders against Palestinian-owned structures, of which upwards of 11,000 are currently outstanding, it said.
