    OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and other organizations said Monday that Israel destroyed various infrastructures built with European funds across the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in 2011.
    This came in a report compiled by a group of local and international NGOs chaired by OCHA, and published just ahead of a meeting of the European union foreign ministers in Brussels.

    Israel demolished dozens of Palestinian homes, water cisterns and farm buildings built with European funds in 2011, and over 100 such structures are at risk, the humanitarian groups stated in a report.

    The displacement working group (DWG) said Israel razed 62 European-funded structures last year and another 110 such projects are at risk of demolition.

    The DWG said the affected structures were financed by France, the Netherlands, Britain, Poland, Ireland and the European commission.

    France last month protested to Israel's ambassador in Paris over the demolition of two water cisterns in Al-Khalil city in the southern West Bank, which were financed as part of a French agricultural cooperation project.

    OCHA said a total of 620 structures in the West Bank were demolished in 2011, 62 of them were European-funded.
