Over 280 Palestinians in al-Tur neighborhood are threatened with Israel’s forced displacement and house demolitions as a part of the American Road project, one of Israel’s largest and most expensive projects aims to confiscate 45 dunums of the neighborhood.

Since June 2020, Israel has been building the bypass road linking West Bank illegal settlements to Jerusalem, and it is set to cost over $250 million.

Using the pretext of illegal building, ‘Israel’ demolishes houses and structures on a regular basis to restrict Palestinian expansion in occupied Jerusalem.

At the same time, the municipality and the occupation government built tens of thousands of housing units in illegal settlements in occupied Jerusalem for Jews with a goal to offset the demographic balance in favour of the Israeli settlers in the occupied city.

‘Israel’ has been moving its citizens into the neighbourhoods of Jerusalem since the 1980s. This has resulted in numerous human rights violations, including the forced displacement of Palestinian residents.

Hundreds of Palestinian families are being threatened with displacement and house demolitions by illegal settler groups, fully supported by the Israeli government.

There are nearly 700,000 Israeli settlers living in 256 illegal settlements and outposts scattered across the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Israeli settlements are illegal under international law.
