Israeli occupation forces 19 Palestinian families to leave West Bank forcibly

NEW YORK, Aug. 04 (YPA) – The United Nations announced that 19 Palestinian families were forced to leave a herding community in the West Bank, due to “coercive” Israeli measures.

This came in a report issued by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), which was published on Wednesday.

The report stated that the families, which consisted of “about 100 Palestinians”, were forced to leave the Ras al-Tin pastoral gathering, in Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank, early July 2022.

It referred that this is because their living conditions have become intolerable, as a result of coercive measures linked to the Israeli occupation, according to what the residents said.

Some residents explained that the reason for leaving was due to their living conditions that had become intolerable, citing coercive measures related to the occupation imposed on them by the Israeli occupation authorities and Israeli settlers.

According to the report, this population is mostly dependent on grazing, and initial assessments show that this recent relocation of the 19 families is largely the result of the accumulation of settler violence, demolitions, harassment and other coercive measures.
