UN condemns demolitions of Palestinian homes by Israel

palestinian house demolished  father , sonThe UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestinian refugees has condemned Israel’s demolition of Palestinian Bedouin dwellings in the West Bank, calling for an immediate halt.

“UNRWA condemns the latest demolitions in the West Bank, which displaced 68 people, the most recent of which occurred on Christmas Eve,” spokesman Chris Gunness said in a statement.

“The demolitions took place in Ein Ayoub near Ramallah and Fasayil al-Wusta near Jericho in the Jordan valley with 61 persons displaced in Ein Ayoub, and seven persons, all refugees, displaced in Fasayil al-Wusta,” Gunness said. He added that 32 of those displaced were children, “including a five year old girl who is paralyzed from the waist down.”

“In addition, some 750 head of sheep and goats are without shelter at this crucial lambing season,” he said.

Gunness stated that at least 663 Palestinian buildings – including 259 homes – have been demolished, and 1,103 Palestinians have been displaced in the West Bank and East Jerusalem this year.

The spokesman urged Israel to obey international laws and halt demolitions.

Israel maintains that it only dismantles buildings that were put up without permission. But Palestinians say they are almost never granted permits.

The UN has continuously spoken out against demolitions in the West Bank. Earlier in December, the United Nations decried Israel’s decision to destroy over two dozen Palestinian properties in the West Bank, issuing a statement accusing Israel of pushing the same Palestinian families out of their homes in less than two weeks.

Moreover, dozens of NGOs have asked Israel not to continue the demolitions. Palestinian leaders maintain that resettlement efforts must cease if there is ever to be any chance of peace with Israel.

“Demolitions often occur to facilitate the expansion of illegal Israeli settlements, with 60 percent of demolitions occurring in Palestinian communities close to settlement zones,” Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Oxfam, and other rights groups declared in a joint statement earlier in December.

      When you do not see the wrong in this Heraclitus… No matter what side you support you already lost your humanity and you are no longer different than those Mullahs you despise… Rise beyond this and make this world a better place… Merry Christmas!

        From what I understand, these homes were built without a permit? I mean really, you try doing it in any country and see what happens. I just think its sad that Jews are told they cannot live on land thats been purchased by them since the days of the Ottoman Empire (then deported by Jordan, something no one even talks about), and todays “peace talks” talk about displacing 600,000 people, while if a single Arab builds something without a permit and gets displaced as a result of it, the UN shouts bloody murder.

        Merry Christmas to you too xoxx 🙂

          You mean.. Rothschild at the time President of the World Zionist Mouvement, purchased a whole country from Churchill? Palestine was not British property.
          It’s like if France at the time would have sold the entire Lebanese land, call it Israel and the Lebanese “invented people”
          That’s not in the Balfour declaration, wich was never respected by the Zionists.
          Nothing and no one can stand up and negociate the Zionist plan..the road map
          will be followed for as much generations and rivers of blood it will take, untill accomplished. ME distruction is part of “From the Euphraetus to the tigris”

            Ottoman Empire collapsed, Britain and France carved up countries, one of them Jewish. No such country called palestine existed.

            1/4 of the world was under British control, they said the British Empire has no sunset. The matter is not unique to Israel or Jordan or or or

          • Hind Abyad

            I know the Pompus “British Empire had no sunset”!!
            His Majesty gave loaded cargos of Opium for Hong Kong.. the pushers

            To controle 1/4 of the world, is NOT to own 1/4 of the world to sell parts.
            It was for a home to Jews to Share, not to take!
            All what ensued was Zionist work on the ground, Joseph Stern, Haganah,
            after WW1. The butchers who introduced terrorism in the Holy Land, King David hotel Begin Irgun, Shamir Stern group, beginning of the 40thies..to prepare long before the “holocaust was planed by the Germans, that helped the Zionists a “lot”.

            What’s the reason Israel has no borders..

            The green wasn’t Arab land. It was British land. Also a large amount of them aren’t refugees but internally displaced persons. A large amount are descendents of refugees and not refugees. Many are citizens of other countries and aren’t refugees. The UN has a different definition for Palestinian Arab refugees than it does for all other refugees. It’s all rubbish.

            Oh please, these loons are just waiting for the messiah to return before accepting Israel. It has nothing to do with politics or the conflict with the palestinians.

          • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

            Those movements are a couple of hundred years old and they are heretics. EVEN they believe that we are a nation and that Israel is our land, they are just ridiculous and think that we have to wait for the messiah and suffer.
