Palestinians Protest in Khan Al-Ahmar Against Israeli Calls to Evict It

Palestinians Protest in Khan Al-Ahmar Against Israeli Calls to Evict It
M.S | DOP -

Palestinians demonstrated in the village of Khan Al-Ahmar, east of Jerusalem, today, Monday, January 23, 2022, following calls of extremist Israeli officials to evict its Palestinian residents and demolish their homes.

The protesters, including Palestinian officials and activists, stressed the seriousness of the Israeli occupation’s plans to evict the village and demolish the homes of its residents to implement an Israeli settlement plan known as E1.

It’s noteworthy that more than 200 Palestinians, more than half of whom are children, live in Khan AlAhmar.

In March 2010, the Israeli occupation authorities issued orders to evacuate the village. However, after the order was appealed in court, the eviction orders were delayed until May 2018. On September 5, 2018, the Israeli occupation renewed its efforts to demolish the village.

However, the Palestinian resistance to the occupation’s decision and the international efforts forced the Israeli occupation to stop implementing it.

With the establishment of the new Israeli extreme right-wing government, the fascist ministers in this government renewed calls for the eviction of the residents of Khan Al-Ahmar and the demolition of their homes.
