Many Palestinians go to bed every night without knowing if their homes will be bulldozed during the night by the Israeli police. According to Jeff Halper, the founder of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, house demolitions are one of Israel's main weapons of occupation of Palestinian land.The destruction of homes is similar in most cases. According to the Israeli government, homes are destroyed because the owners have built them without securing building permits. Therefore, the house is deemed illegal and subject to demolition. The practice of home demolitions originated under the British Mandate.They have accused the Israelis of engaging in a strategy of taking over Palestinian land by annexation through the building of the Israeli barrier on the West Bank. And they have regarded demolitions of homes as part of an effort to create, expand or otherwise benefit Israeli settlements.
