Palestinian families in al Baqa’a and Ras al Tin communities of the West Bank have been forced to leave due to Israeli settler violence and military actions.Palestinian families
The recent Protection of Civilians report by the UN's OCHA highlights instances from July 25 to August 7.
An eight-member family in al Baqa’a left due to a new Israeli settlement, and 36 people from the same area sought safer locations.
In Ras al Tin, 12 households with 89 people, including 39 children, left because settlers took their grazing land.
By August 8, all Ras al Tin families had moved, leaving the community deserted. Displacement is driven by sustained settler violence, demolitions, and coercion.
Over 477 individuals, including 261 children, were forced to leave various communities due to violence and loss of land access.
OCHA documented coercive practices such as home destruction, military force, and attacks causing harm and livelihood loss, with little accountability for the perpetrators.
