Jerusalem (CNN)The United Nations and the European Union have criticized the demolition by the Israeli military of a large portion of a Palestinian community in the West Bank that left 73 people, including 41 children, homeless.

The UN described the demolition in the community of Khirbet Humsa as "the largest forced displacement incident in over four years."
Israel's Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), which administers the occupied West Bank, said seven tents and eight pens were destroyed because they were built illegally in a firing zone in the Jordan Valley.
    The UN said 73 people were displaced by the demolition in Khirbet Humsa on Tuesday.
