State of Palestine: Palestinian village sealed off ahead of demolition

Palestinian village Khan al-Ahmar was sealed-off on Thursday, with journalists who came to report of the event having their cars evacuated from the scene. Tractors were seen active in the village, with personnel of the Israeli security forces highly present in the area. Some journalists discovered their cars being removed from the site, others were fined for placing their vehicles close to the... Еще demolition zone. 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. Yesterday, Palestinian activists protested against the demolition as Israeli forces moved in with three bulldozers. The initially peacefully protest 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.
