Activists Camp at West Bank Bedouin Village as Israeli Demolition Looms

KHAN AL-AHMAR, West Bank Palestinian protesters and international volunteers camped out overnight in the Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar in the occupied West Bank on Friday ahead of its planned demolition by Israeli authorities who claim the settlement was built without a permit.

Khan al-Ahmar is a cluster of shacks and rudimentary buildings home to around 180 people roughly half of whom are children located between the West Bank city of Jericho and Jerusalem, near the Israeli settlement of Maale Adumim.

Israel plans to demolish the settlement on the basis that its construction was not officially sanctioned.

Petitions filed by residents of Khan al-Ahmar in a bid to halt proceedings were rejected by the Israeli High Court of Justice.

Local Palestinian activists and international volunteers spent the night at the settlement in protest of the Israeli court decision.
