Global Protection Cluster

Mission to Palestine

Palestine is faced with explosive ordnance (EO) contamination stemming from past armed conflicts. The presence of explosive ordnance threatens the security and safety of communities and hampers the development of several regions. Their removal requires surveys, clearance and the development of mine action programmes. While the full extent of the contamination has yet to be established, explosive ordnance has already killed or injured people including several children in recent months.  A grave protection concern is the fear of explosive ordnance, also hindering farming and access to livelihoods.
