High Court upholds state’s decision to demolish Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar

The High Court of Justice rules to allow the state to move forward with its plans to demolish the Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar adjacent to the Israeli settlement of Kfar Adumim in the coming weeks.

The panel of three judges conclude that there is no legal justification to prevent the demolition of the small Palestinian hamlet given that it was built on state land without the necessary permits.

The residents would be relocated elsewhere, it added, in a move critics say amounts to forcible transfer.
