UNITED NATIONS - The UN humanitarian chief has criticised Israel's forceful displacement of Palestinians, emphasizing its adverse impact on Palestinian communities. Speaking to reporters at UN Headquarters in New York after a four-day visit to the region, Valerie Amos, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, said Israel must suspend the forced eviction and displacement of civilians from their homes in the occupied Palestinian territory. Ms. Amos, who is also the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, described the policy as illegal under international law and said it had devastating, long-term humanitarian consequences for residents. Palestinians are utterly frustrated by the impact of Israeli policies on their lives, she said.
