CAIRO, (PIC)– The UN office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs (OCHA) said the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) in less than one week demolished 22 Palestinian buildings and homes in the in the occupied Palestinian lands of West Bank and Jerusalem.

According to a report released Monday by OCHA, the IOA, within the first six days of the current month, knocked down 22 buildings and homes belonging to Palestinians at the pretext of unlicensed construction in east Jerusalem neighborhoods and the area C under control of the Israeli occupation.

The report also said the IOA issued 19 written orders to terminate the construction of several residential buildings, one mosque, five wells, four cattle pens and 11 electricity projects in the cities of Al-Khalil and Qalqiliya west of the West Bank.

The report noted that the Israeli occupation forces started last week to build a new section of concrete barrier in the area north of Qalandiya village and the entrance of Shufat refugee camp in central Jerusalem, which will result in the isolation of an area of 400 hundreds dunums of Palestinian lands from the holy city.
