ICAHD: Demolishing Homes, Demolishing Peace
Political and Normative Analysis of Israel´s Displacement Policy in the OPT
Five Decades of Displacement
ICAHD is an Israeli peace and human rights organization dedicated to ending the Occupation and achieving a just peace between Israelis and Palestinians. In particular, ICAHD resists Israel’s policy of demolishing Palestinian homes in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. ICAHD estimates that some 26,000 Palestinian structures have been demolished in the Occupied Palestinian Territory since 1967, based on information collected from the Israeli Ministry of Interior, the Jerusalem Municipality, the Civil Administration, UN bodies and agencies, Palestinian, Israeli and int ernational human rights gr oups, our field monit oring, and other sources.
This publication provides a political and normative analysis of the root causes and consequences of Israel’s displacement and demolition policy, focusing on the demolition of Palestinian homes and other structures in the Occupied West Bank.
