Palestinians check belongings scattered on the ground after Israeli bulldozers razed four Palestinian homes near the ancient city of Jericho on November 15, 2011 with Israel saying they endangered a nearby archaeological site. A spokesman for the department within the Israeli defence ministry which administers the occupied West Bank, said the homes were built on government-owned land which was to be used by the nearby settlement of Vered Yericho. UNRWA said the demolitions took place in Area C, the 60 percent of the West Bank which is designated as under full Israeli control, in which Israel has designated just one percent of land for Palestinian development.
