Israeli authorities regularly carry out demolitions of Palestinian-owned homes and facilities in the occupied West Bank and occupied Jerusalem, under the pretext that they are buildings without permits.

Palestinian construction permits are rarely approved by Israeli authorities.

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) released a new report documenting the Israeli human rights violations and said that the number of Palestinian homes and structures demolished or seized, and people displaced in 2021 represents an increase of 21 and 28% respectively, compared with the equivalent figures in 2020.

More than 850 Palestinian homes and structures were destroyed by Israel in 2021, including 160 units in occupied Jerusalem, according to rights groups.

The demolitions last year displaced around 900 people, including 463 minors.
