Home demolitions in the Jordan Valley, August 2016
14 August 2016
Footage of the wreckage left behind by Israeli authorities’ Aug. 2016 demolitions in three Palestinian West Bank communities. The number of homes Israel demolished in the West Bank from Jan. to Aug. 2016 is the highest it has been since B’Tselem began recording demolitions that cite “construction without a permit” in 2006. This is part of a policy to step up demolitions, implemented while Israel is engaged in “structured dialogue” on the matter with the EU, and despite international condemnation in the Quartet’s July report.
