Occupied Jerusalem (In Palestine Today)- Israeli occupation authorities demolished 300 buildings in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem since the beginning of the year, according to data from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

The data is composed of each permanent closure or destruction of a residential or commercial property, or key piece of infrastructure such as water pipes, roads and network facilities.

The report issued by OCHA also warned that an imminent Israeli demolition of a Palestinian residential building, consisting of 12 housing units, based in the Wadi Qaddum neighbourhood of Silwan, will leave 74 Palestinians homeless, including 42 children.
