Housing Demolitions: During the same period, Al-Haq documented a total of 588 punitive house demolitions in the West Bank (512 completely demolished, 70 partially demolished and six completely sealed), leading to the displacement of 3,378 people.

Since 2004, the Israeli authorities have demolished 1,386 houses due to the lack of a building permit; of which 373 were in East Jerusalem, leading to the displacement of 4,347 people.
