An Israeli court will soon decide on the demolition order of Khan al-Ahmar - a Palestinian village in the occupied West Bank - so that Israeli homes can be built in its place.
 
Regavim, a rightist settler group, is lobbying for the move, which would make about about 100 families homeless.
 
Israeli authorities have already given orders to knock down a school and many shacks in the village.

Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland reports from Khan al-Ahmar, one of the many Palestinian communities under threat.
