OCCUPIED JERUSALEM – The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has strongly denounced Israel for declaring 18 percent of the West Bank territory, particularly in Area C, “a shooting zone.”

38 Palestinian communities are located in this area, where the Israeli army continually demolishes homes.

OCHA also warned that the expansion of this Israeli shooting zone would considerably affect the lives of marginalized and disadvantaged groups (Bedouins) in these areas.

The UN organization underlined that international law and humanitarian law prohibit such Israeli practices in the occupied Palestinian territories.

It noted that the Israeli army had demolished, since the start of 2016, 323 Palestinian homes and structures in different areas of the West Bank, most of them in Area C.

Those demolitions led to the displacement of about 440 Palestinians, more than half of them children, and rendered about 17,000 without any means of livelihood.

  1. Those demolitions led to the displacement of about 440 Palestinians, more than half of them children, and rendered about 17,000 without any means of livelihood

    That’s the whole point. The Zionist expression “encouraging the goyim to emigrate” is code for demolishing their homes and depriving them of their livelihood.
