Israeli forces demolish school in Bedouin community | World War 4 Report

27.2.16

Israeli forces demolish school in Bedouin community | World War 4 Report: On Feb. 17, the Coordinator for Humanitarian and UN Development Activities for the occupied Palestinian territory Robert Piper said the number of Palestinians displaced so far in 2016 is already equivalent to over half of the total number displaced in all of 2015. Piper called on Israel to immediately halt all demolitions in the occupied West Bank, which he said were in violation of international law. "Most of the demolitions in the West Bank take place on the spurious legal grounds that Palestinians do not possess building permits," Piper said. "But, in Area C, official Israeli figures indicate only 1.5 percent of Palestinian permit applications are approved in any case. So what legal options are left for a law-abiding Palestinian?"

The UN documented 283 homes and other structures destroyed, dismantled, or confiscated between Jan. 1 and Feb. 15. The measures displaced 404 Palestinians, including 219 children. Another 1,150 Palestinians were also affected after losing structures related to their source of income, according to the UN. The destruction was focused in 41 locations, many in Palestinian Bedouin or herder communities in Area C, the over 60 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli military control.
