The United Nations (UN) says the Israeli regime must end the demolition of Palestinian homes in East Al-Quds (Jerusalem).
“Demolitions in the east of Al-Quds have increased at an astonishing rate over the past month, leaving dozens of displaced Palestinians and others who lost their livelihoods overnight. This must stop,” the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) coordinator Jamie McGoldrick said Friday.
The UN coordinator’s statements come after the Tel Aviv regime demolished 31 structures in several Palestinian Al-Quds neighborhoods on April 29 alone, the highest number of bulldozes in a single day since it was recorded in 2009.
Israeli authorities destroy Palestinian homes for the expansion of illegal settlements and the “total Judaization” of the eastern part of Al-Quds.
Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967 are considered illegal by the UN, the European Union (EU) and the vast majority of the international community, for violating the Geneva Convention by building on occupied land.
