Israel pulls down homes in Jordan Valley

Since talks between the Israelis and Palestinians resumed to find a two-state solution, demolitions have doubled.

    The Middle East peace talks have faced many obstacles along the way, including the building of more Israeli settlements, and demolition of Palestinian homes.

    Over 600 Palestinian structures in the occupied West Bank were demolished in 2013 - the highest rate in five years.

    Many believe Israel is trying to change the demographics of the West Bank.
