OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Israel razed 17 Palestinian homes in the West Bank over the past week, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in the occupied Palestinian land said on Saturday.

The report pointed out that Israel demolished eight homes in Enata village in occupied Jerusalem and displaced 52 individuals including 29 children, noting that one of the demolished buildings was being used as a social center and was knocked down for the fifth time.

The other razed structures were shops owned by eight Palestinian families in the Jordan Valley, the report said, adding that demolition notices were also served in the past week to 16 houses in occupied Jerusalem, Al-Khalil, and Nablus.

It further underlined that 12 Palestinians were injured in the Israeli occupation forces’ quelling of peaceful anti settlement and anti separation wall rallies in the West Bank in the same period.

An IOF soldier shot at and wounded a Palestinian youth at the pretext that he tried to assault him while a 17-year-old minor was hurt when Jewish settlers attacked him while at work near Karmi Tzur settlement in Al-Khalil, the report said.
