In the hills south of Hebron, Abu al-Kabash used to wake up surrounded by his cherished pomegranate and fig trees, along with six different types of aloe plants. However, due to violent attacks by Israeli settlers during the recent conflict, the 76-year-old farmer was forced to abandon the land inherited from generations past for his own safety.

More than 1,200 Palestinians in the occupied West Bank have faced similar displacement since the conflict began, leading to the disintegration of at least 15 communities as Israeli settlers rapidly expand their presence. This aggressive settlement expansion aims to alter the demographics of the West Bank and weaken the foundation of a future Palestinian state.

Outposts, considered illegal under international law, are frequently constructed by extremist Israeli settlers on Palestinian land to enforce an Israeli presence. These outposts, along with newly built roads cutting through private Palestinian land, pose a threat to the safety and livelihoods of Palestinian farmers and herders.

As the conflict continues, the displacement and dispossession of Palestinians in the West Bank persist, intensifying the struggle for existence and rights in the midst of ongoing territorial disputes and settler aggression.
