Khan al-Ahmar: Palestinian school faces demolition by Israel

Israeli Supreme Court judges have ordered the demolition of Khan al-Ahmar school, along with the adjacent Bedouin village.

    It's the beginning of the end for a Palestinian school facing imminent demolition along with its village of Khan al-Ahmar in the occupied West Bank.

    Israel's Supreme Court has ruled that the school and village are illegal - and the ten-year court battle to keep the school open is over.

    Bulldozers will level the entire Bedouin village to make room for the expansion of more illegal Israeli settlements.
