Israel: Top court temporarily blocks demolition of Khan al-Ahmar

Khan al-Ahmar was scheduled for demolition to expand the illegal Male Adumin settlement.

by

    Israel's Supreme Court has issued a temporary injunction to block the demolition of a Palestinian village in the occupied West Bank.

    The Bedouin community of Khan al-Ahmar has lived there since before Israel's occupation of the area more than 50 years ago.

    The Israeli government says the villagers can move their homes to another area, near a landfill.
