Israeli occupation authorities demolished, seized or forced Palestinians to demolish 49 Palestinian-owned structures in the first two weeks of November, displacing 38 people and otherwise affecting the livelihoods or access to services of almost 400 others, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in the occupied Palestinian territory.
OCHA said in its biweekly Protection of Civilians report covering the period between 2 and 15 November that among the structures demolished in Area C of the occupied West Bank, which is under full Israeli military rule, were a mosque, eight residential structures and 23 livelihood structures in 16 communities. Eight structures were demolished in East Jerusalem, including two homes demolished by their owners under pressure from the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem.
On 5 November, Israeli occupation forces shot and killed a 15-year-old Palestinian boy in Deir al Hatab village in the Nablus district.
Overall, in the West Bank, Israeli forces injured 190 Palestinians. Of those, 135 were wounded during protests against settlement activities near Beita (126) and Beit Dajan (9), in the Nablus governorate.
