UN Expresses Concern over Impending Demolition of Homes by Israel in Palestine

UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) on Saturday expressed grave concern about an Israeli court decision rejecting appeals by Palestine refugee families against two punitive demolitions in Kalandia refugee camp.

“UNRWA is gravely concerned about the recent decision of the Israeli High Court of Justice to reject the appeals filed by Palestine refugee families against two punitive demolitions in Kalandia refugee camp. The two families of Palestinian fighters were given five days as of 14 June to evacuate the apartments. Today, the family is in a state of perpetual apprehension as they wait for implementation of the punitive demolition which could occur at any undefined time,” UNRWA Spokesperson Chris Gunness said in a statement, Sputnik reported.

Gunness added that demolitions are illegal under international law. Palestinians seek recognition for their independent state on the territories of West Bank as well as Eastern Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip. Israel denies Palestine’s claims, refusing to diplomatically recognize the existence of a Palestinian state. Peace talks between the sides are consistently deadlocked
