  'Israel' demolished 170,000 houses, confiscated 21 dunums since Land Day

March 30, 2020

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- The Israeli occupation has demolished over 
170,000 houses, confiscated over 21 million dunums, and uprooted over 3 
million trees since the Land Day in 1976.

A report by the land search center at the Arabic Studies Association to 
mark the 44th anniversary of the Land Day stated that the occupation 
state has built a 700 km long apartheid wall, set nearly 900 military 
checkpoints and gates, and constructed over 1400 km of settlement roads.

The report added that the Israeli authorities have been expanding 
illegal settlement as well as issuing demolition and evacuation orders 
for Palestinians.

The occupation state built nearly 528 settlement outposts, suffocating 
and surrounding Palestinian villages throughout the West Bank and 
Jerusalem and increasing Jewish settlers in the West Bank to 850,000.

The report stressed that the occupation state unleashes illegal settlers 
to attack Palestinians and vandalize their properties. The settlers 
chopped off trees, attacked native Palestinians and shepherds, and 
committed vandalism.

in 1976, the Israeli police shot six Palestinians in the occupation 
state dead as they were protesting against the Israeli government’s 
expropriation of thousands of dunums of Palestinian land in the Galilee. 
Since then, March 30 has been known as Land Day and is an important date 
in the Palestinian political calendar.
