The report published on Monday said that the IOA razed two Palestinian homes in Sheikh Jarrah and Beit Hanina in eastern Jerusalem rendering 15 Palestinian citizens homeless including seven children.

It added that the IOG also destroyed ten other Palestinian installations in Tur suburb including cattle pens and warehouses.

The IOG uprooted more than 100 olive trees and confiscated construction equipment, OCHA said, noting that as a result eight Jerusalemite families lost their sources of livelihood.

The report pointed out that the Israeli occupation forces closed a number of main roads in the West Bank in the same period in line with the policy of harassing and humiliating Palestinian citizens.
