Landmines in the region have been a problem since the 1950s and 1960s, when more than 1.5 million land mines have been laid in a combined area of over 202 million square meters in the Golan Heights, the Arava Valley and along the Jordan River. This includes more than 300,000 land mines contaminating around 20 million square meters of agricultural and residential land in the West Bank with UXO further making sites inaccessible.
What we do
Quality Assurance and Quality Control
Between 2016 and 2018, ITF implemented Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) on demining works in the West Bank. The goal of the project and its activities was to certify accordance of clearance operations with IMAS and NMAS, and confirm that the formerly mined land no longer threatens the lives of local population.
In 2017, ITF has developed the project of Special Rehabilitation Center Facilities in Betlehem. The project objective is to provide rehabilitation treatment for patients, victims of conflict, from the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
