Displacement and Insecurity in Area C of the West Bank | August 2011

This new report, based on field visits to 13 communities in Area C, found that Palestinian families live in a state of pervasive insecurity and daily life has deteriorated to such an extent that some residents are forced to leave in order to meet their basic needs, feed their families or educate their children.
