In just the past week in East Jerusalem and in parts of the West Bank:
20 structures – demolished
at least 61 people – newly homeless.
199 homes – demolished
1,051 people – displaced
7 December 2011 – In a Bedouin community, Khan al-Ahmar Mihtawish, in Jerusalem Area C, the Israeli Civil Administration demolished two residential barracks, which had been rebuilt following the prior demolition in the community on 31 October 2011.
Two tents of the International Committee of the Red Cross (see ICRC’s mission here) and two water tanks provided in response to the previous demolition were confiscated.
Twelve people (including nine children) were displaced and some 21 others affected.
There is just no end to this horror, is there!
Even the work of the Red Cross is being undone.
