From 2006 until 28 Feb. 2018, Israel demolished at least 1,328 Palestinian residential units in the West Bank (not including East Jerusalem), causing 5,979 people – including at least 3,025 minors – to lose their homes.

In Palestinian communities unrecognized by the State of Israel, many which are facing the threat of expulsion, Israel repeatedly demolishes residents’ homes. From 2006 through 28 Feb. 2018, the homes of at least 983 people living in these communities - including 471 minors - were demolished more than once by Israel.

In addition, from January 2016 through Feb. 2018, the Civil Administration demolished 490non-residential structures (such as fences, cisterns, roads, storerooms, farming buildings, businesses and public buildings) in the West Bank (excluding East Jerusalem).
