The High Court grants yet another three-month delay to the government in carrying out its evacuation of the West Bank Bedouin village of Khan al Ahmar.

The evacuation of the village, which was mandated by the court in 2018, has been pushed off repeatedly for a series of reasons.

In its ruling, the court grants the government another four-month delay, until February 2023, citing the current election and interim government.

A year ago, the court granted a similar delay after the government claimed to have made progress toward a plan for evacuation.
