BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Since the beginning of 2010, there has been a sharp increase in house demolitions in Area C, Defense for Children - Palestine said in a report expressing concern about the effects such actions have on children.

Displacement has an acute negative psychological impact on children, the group said in a statement issued Saturday. It called on Israel to "cease these demolitions and to respect the rights of Palestinian children to an adequate standard of living."
