Palestinian activists protested against the demolition of the West Bank Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar on Wednesday, as Israeli forces moved in with three bulldozers. The protest began peacefully, with Palestinian activists lining up to create a human chain in front of the machines as others flew the Palestinian flag. After refusing to move, tensions escalated and scuffles broke out. The... Еще confrontation ended with Israeli forces ploughing the bulldozers onwards to create an access route to the village. According to Palestinian sources, 35 protesters were hurt, while Israeli police said two people were arrested. The Israeli Supreme Court approved the request to demolish the village in May, claiming that Khan al-Ahmar was built illegally without an Israeli permit and that the residents should relocate to the nearby village Al Jabel. Around 180 people live in the village, mostly working as shepherds.
