Israeli forces prepare for razing the West Bank Palestinian village
16 September, 2018, 01:13
Opponents of the demolition argue that it is part of an effort to enable the expansion of the nearby settlement of Kfar Adumim and to create a region of contiguous Israeli control from Jerusalem nearly to the Dead Sea, a move critics say will bisect the West Bank, making a contiguous Palestinian state impossible. Israel places severe restrictions on Palestinian development there and home demolitions are not unusual.
As part of interim peace deals in the 1990s, the West Bank was carved up into autonomous and semi-autonomous Palestinian areas, known as Areas A and B, and Area C, which is home to some 400,000 Israeli settlers. It has offered to resettle the residents 12 kilometres (7 miles) away under what it says are improved conditions - with connections to water, electricity and sewage treatment they now don't have.
The community in Al-Khan Al-Ahmar is one of the 46 Bedouin communities in the central West Bank that the United Nations considers at risk of forcible transfer.

Assaf stressed on the importance of the presence of residents in the village to protect their homes and lands from being taken by Israel as part of a plan for the expansion of illegal Israeli settlements. Security forces were deployed to the village and construction workers began paving an access road that would facilitate the demolition and evacuation.
Israeli authorities have offered alternative sites for Khan Al-Ahmar residents, but villagers say the first was near a rubbish dump and the latest close to a sewage treatment plant.
On September 5, Israel'ssupreme court upheld an order to raze the village on grounds that it was built without the proper permits. Israel says Khan al-Ahmar was illegally built and in an unsafe location near a major highway.
