RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The UN office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs (OCHA) said in its weekly report covering some Israeli violations from 20 to 26 June that Israel demolished 15 Palestinian homes and structures in the occupied territories of the West Bank and Jerusalem during the reporting period.

According to its report, 20 Palestinians were rendered homeless as a result of these demolitions.

The report recalled that Israel has razed 371 Palestinian structures, including 124 residential buildings since the beginning of the current year and consequently displaced 600 Palestinians.

OCHA pointed to the demolition notices delivered to Palestinian villagers in the Jordan Valley region as well as the Palestinian real estate that sustained material damage as a result of the Israeli military exercises that took place in Akrabaniya and Ein Shalabi areas in Nablus city during the week.

It said that the average of weekly injuries among the Palestinians in the West Bank rose to 62 individuals during 2012, while there were 28 injuries during 2011.

It added that the weekly average of violent attacks by settlers on Palestinian property amounted to six incidents in 2012.
