Forced displacement

Israel’s attempt to demolish Palestinian village Khan al Ahmar contravenes international law

Israeli forces are forcibly displacing Palestinians as they attempt to demolish the Bedouin village of Khan al Ahmar in the occupied West Bank. Israeli forces are dragging away residents and protesters and attacking people as they resist being forcibly displaced from their homes. The Palestinian Red Crescent has reported 35 people wounded, with four taken to hospital. Our comrades at the Israeli rights group B’Tselem report nine people have been arrested.

Activist Abeer Al Butmeh of PENGON-Friends of the Earth Palestine shared with Real World Radio an account of what happened and made reference to the official position of her organization, which is a member of Friends of the Earth International.
