Displacement and Demolitions in the occupied Palestinian Territory Report
This week the Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defence published our report; Displacement and Demolitions in the occupied Palestinian territory.
The report calls for an end to further evictions, transfer of settlers, demolitions, land appropriations, and pillage of natural resources in the occupied Palestinian territory. And to enable meaningful negotiation, the Committee recommends Israeli authorities take concrete steps to dismantle illegal settlements and disengage from the occupied Palestinian territory.
It further calls on the Israeli authorities to cease the targeting of humanitarian aid in the West Bank through demolition and confiscation. The Committee expresses particular concern, in the report, at the reported 108% increase in demolitions of donor-funded structures including schools and medical centres, many of which are funded by the EU and EU Member States.
