Israeli occupation soldiers, on Monday, dismantled residential tents and agricultural structures, and seized a vehicle in the northern Jordan Valley, Quds News Network has reported.

According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA )December 2020 West Bank Demolitions and Displacement report;

“The cumulative number of structures demolished or seized in 2020 (849) across the occupied West Bank, and the number of Palestinians displaced as a result (996) are the largest since 2016. The number of donor-funded aid structures targeted in 2020 (156) is also the highest since 2016.”

“One of the major trends observed in 2020 was the increased use of military orders and other legislation, preventing or limiting people’s ability to legally challenge the targeting of their homes and sources of livelihood in Israeli courts.”
