occupied Palestinian territory Humanitarian Dashboard, 2012 CAP Mid-Year Review - June 2012
Outlook: Palestinians in the oPt continue to face regular threats to life, liberty and security as a result of conflict-related and settler-related violence. Acceleration in the implementation of demolition orders especially in Area C, below-average rainfall , and exceptionally high food and inputs prices will further impact the humanitarian situation.
Most affected groups and areas: In Gaza: farmers with land in access restricted areas (ARA), fishers, unemployed youth and chronic poor living under the deep poverty line. In the West Bank: herders and Bedouin communities in Area C and farmers with land behind the Barrier.
Most affected areas: Gaza, East Jerusalem, H2 and Area C (including areas near Israeli settlements and those affected by the Barrier).
Main drivers of the crisis: The main aspects of the occupation remain in place and consequently the humanitarian needs in the oPt have not changed fundamentally in Gaza, Area C, the seam zones, and East Jerusalem. Serious protection and human rights concerns, lim ited access to essential services and entrenched levels of food insecurity continue to characterize the day-to-day lives of many Palestinians.
