3 October 2018, Jerusalem, Occupied Palestinian Territories: In May 2018, the Israel Supreme Court approved the Israeli Defense Minister’s order to demolish Khan al Ahmar. For many in Khan al Ahmar, it would not be the first time, as the village is home to a few dozen families from the Jahalin tribe, expelled from their home in the Negev to the West Bank in the 1950s. Khan al Ahmar is a Bedouin community located within the East Jerusalem Periphery, in E1 area. It is home to 32 families, 173 persons in total, including 92 children and youths. The community has a mosque and a school, which was built in 2009 and serves more than 150 children between the ages of six and fifteen, from Khan al Ahmar and other nearby communities. With due date 1 October 2018, Israeli authorities threaten to demolish the site, thereby making room for nearby Israeli settlements to expand.
