(7) Since 2010, about 45% of demolitions of Palestinian structures occurred in firing zones. Over 820 civilians were displaced.

(8) Ten Israeli settlement outposts are either partly or entirely in firing zones.

In the 1970s, Israel declared large West Bank areas closed military areas. Palestinians can't live there without permission. It's rarely granted. Those there face dispossession. Demarcating land is one way Israel steals it. Humanitarian impact doesn't matter.

Firing zones aren't clearly marked. Residents say little or no military activity occurs there. Affected Palestinians are among those most in need. Limited essential services are available.

Regular demolitions target residents. Israeli settlement outposts aren't threatened. Families living in or near firing zones are herders. They need livestock grazing land. They're greatly restricted. 

Violators face substantial fines and/or imprisonment. Villagers also have to pay costs for their own property confiscations and/or demolitions. They're punished two or more times over.

Palestinians in firing zones face property losses, IDF harassment, water scarcity, movement restrictions, and settler violence.

Israel spurns its occupying power obligations. It ignores basic needs and welfare. It violates international law with impunity. It creates hellish conditions for affected Palestinians.
