Record number of Palestinian homes destroyed in 2016

United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, O-C-H-A, says Israel destroyed or seized nearly 11-hundred Palestinian-owned structures in 20-16. This has left nearly 16-hundred Palestinians homeless and has affected the lives of thousands of others. Israel often rejects Palestinian requests to build in the Palestinian territories. This is while Israeli settlers are easily granted permits to build in the occupied territories. All Israeli settlements are illegal under international law.
