The price of a house in the holy city of Jerusalem is a whopping $1.6 million.
But the average home in the city, which boasts a population of almost 10 million, is a mere $300,000.
A similar ratio is found in parts of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, which the UN estimates is more than 80% below the official poverty line.
Many of the poorest Palestinians are forced to live in makeshift settlements that are overcrowded, underfunded and sometimes built on illegal Israeli settlement structures.
A new government that took office in February is set to begin building homes and building schools and clinics.
The UN estimates that there are more than 10 million Palestinians in need of shelter in the occupied territories.
In recent years, a wave of protests against Israel’s policies of settlement expansion and land confiscation has led to an increase in protests against Israeli policies, which include the blockade of Gaza, restrictions on the movement of goods and people, and restrictions on Palestinians’ rights to freedom of movement.
In March, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on the international community to “stop the Israeli occupation of Palestine” and to support Palestinian rights, including those of Palestinians in the Westbank and Gaza.
However, many experts say that the Israeli government will continue to impose restrictions on Palestinian rights in the Occupied Territories.
Israel, which claims the West bank and Gaza as its own, has repeatedly violated international law, including through its blockade of the Gaza Strip.
Israel’s military has destroyed thousands of homes, including dozens in Beit Hanoun, killing thousands of people.
In August, Israel destroyed homes in Bethlehem and other Palestinian towns and neighborhoods.
In the Gaza strip, Israel is responsible for the deaths of thousands of Palestinians and its use of deadly force against Palestinian civilians.
Palestinians, who make up only 4% of Israel’s population, make up about 30% of the Palestinians who are killed by Israel’s forces each year.
The Israeli government has accused the international media of deliberately misrepresenting the conflict in the territories, and has repeatedly accused the United States of interfering in its internal affairs, including with respect to the blockade.
Last week, Israel announced that it would start demolishing Palestinian homes in the Gaza area that have not been built on military orders.
The plan includes the destruction of all existing structures and homes.
According to the Israeli Civil Administration, a body tasked with regulating construction projects, the construction of homes in Area C is now under the control of the local authorities, and that of all buildings is currently under the supervision of the Civil Administration.
But many residents in the area have expressed concern about the demolition process.
The demolitions began in August and have already destroyed over a hundred homes, and some residents are concerned that the process could continue into next year.
According the Israeli Ministry of Defense, construction of new homes is only permitted when the Civil Authority agrees to provide “security” for the residents.
In a statement to Al Jazeera, the Civil Affairs Ministry said that it has begun the demolition of buildings that are considered illegal and therefore the “building of new houses is prohibited.”
Residents of the area fear the demolition will take years, since Israeli authorities are now tasked with “providing security” for those in the areas, such as the families of the dead and injured.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told a meeting of Israeli ministers in Jerusalem on October 3 that “the demolition of houses and other buildings in the Hebron region is an urgent matter that will take time, but it will not take too long.”
Israel’s settlement activity has long been controversial in the region.
In 2007, a report by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey found that between 1967 and 2000, Israel demolished more than 2,000 Palestinian structures in the disputed West Bank.
The number of demolitions has increased since then, according to the PLO.
The Palestinian Authority estimates that between the beginning of 2014 and the end of 2016, Israel has demolished an additional 1,600 structures in Judea and Samaria.
In response to the demolitions, the Palestinian Legislative Council said it would consider a number of legal measures against the Israeli authorities, including a lawsuit against the Civil Aviation Authority.
