Key issues

Thirty-six Palestinian civilians were injured throughout the oPt in conflict related incidents. As during the whole of 2011, most casualties in the West Bank were related to settlement and Barrier activities while in Gaza they occur mainly as a result of Israeli air strikes.

Twenty-five water collection structures were demolished during the reporting period, increasing the vulnerability of people’s livelihoods. Overall in 2011, the number of people displaced was more than twice (over 1,090) the number recorded in the previous year (over 590), with more than 640 structures demolished
