The Zionist occupation entity demolished nearly 166,000 Palestinian homes since its illegal creation, a report said, adding that about one million Palestinian people have been displaced as a result of the ‘Israeli’ occupation of their lands.

The Palestinian Information Center, citing a report by the Land Research Center of the Arab Studies Association in the occupied al-Quds, said in a statement on Tuesday that the Tel Aviv occupation regime had razed to the ground about 165,690 Palestinian homes since its inception, and caused about one million Palestinians to be subjected to internal and external displacement.

“During the first nine months of the year 2020, the occupation forces demolished 450 homes and facilities, and also pushed some Palestinians to demolish their homes with their own hands,” the center added.

The statement also underlined that the Zionist regime had adopted the policy of limiting construction by Palestinians and compelling them to resort to building their homes without permits.

The center said Palestinians in occupied al-Quds alone were in urgent need of 25,000 residential units.

The Zionist authorities usually demolish Palestinian homes in occupied al-Quds and elsewhere in the West Bank, claiming that the structures have been built without permits. They also sometimes order the Palestinian owners to demolish their own homes or pay the demolition costs to the municipality if they do not.
