Israeli authorities demolished 46 Palestinian-owned structures in the month of November, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). The demolitions resulted in the forcible displacement of 136 Palestinians, of whom 70 are children.The number of people displaced by demolition in through 30 November 2014 (1,201 people), has exceeded that of all of 2013 (1,103 people). This means that 2014 is already and will be a 6-year record-high for displacement, which has increased annually since 2009.
There is an 84 percent increase in demolitions and a 123 percent increase in people displaced by demolitions when comparing November 2013 to November 2014 (25 demolitions as compared to 46 demolitions and 61 displaced as compared to 136 displaced.)
The trend of mass demolition on a community level in Area C continued in November, with more than half of all the monthly demolitions (26 out of 46) having occurred in 4 locations in Area C. Those demolitions triggered 66 percent of all the displacement from demolition recorded in November (90 people out of 136 people.) The 4 locations include: Tel Al Khashaba, Bardala, Um Il Kheir, and East Taybeh Bedouin Camp.
