WAFA reports that Israeli forces regularly target residential homes and livelihoods in an aim to force them to leave their homes as a prelude to take over the land.

While settler violence is overlooked and even facilitated by Israeli authorities, Palestinians are rarely ever allowed proper construction permits to build or simply add on to pre-existing structures.
