At a Glance: Forced Displacement of Palestinians on both sides of the Green Line

Forced displacement refers to ‘involuntary removal of persons from their homes or land, directly or indirectly attributable to the State’ (UN OHCHR). International law protects all persons from being arbitrarily displaced from his or her home; however, where the law should safeguard Palestinians in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT), Israel has suspended their rights. Effective protection of the rights of Palestinians demands awareness of the similarities in Israel’s policy of forced displacement against them on both sides of the Green Line.
