Palestinians rallied Monday at al-Khan al-Ahmar neighborhood, east of Jerusalem, following calls by extremist Israeli Occupation officials to evict its Palestinian resident and demolish their homes.
Demonstrators, who included senior Palestinian officials and activists, stressed the gravity of the calls to evict and demolish Khan al-Ahmar in order to replace it with a settlement plan known as E1.
They said that the Israeli Occupation’s schemes will not deter them from continuing their fight.
About 200 people live in Khan al-Ahmar, a Bedouin community from the Jahalin tribe, more than half of them are children.
The Israeli Occupation authorities issued orders in March 2010 to evict the Khan al-Ahmar.
However, after appealing the order in court, the eviction orders were postponed until May 2018 when the Israeli Occupation renewed its efforts to demolish the community and Israeli Occupation courts upheld that decision on Sept. 5, 2018.
However, local and international resistance against the decision has forced the Israeli Occupation not to carry it out until the occupation’s ministers in the new far-right government have called for removing the residents of Khan al-Ahmar and demolishing their homes.
