Israeli forces tear down protest camp near Khan al-Ahmar

Israel places severe restrictions on Palestinian development there and home demolitions are not unusual.

"France reaffirms that the demolition of infrastructure and homes in the West Bank, a Palestinian occupied territory, are contrary to global humanitarian law, and in particular the Fourth Geneva Convention, since they will result in the evacuation and forced transfer of populations, and the Security Council resolutions", the statement read. It has offered to resettle the residents 12 kilometers (7 miles) away under what it says are improved conditions - with connections to water, electricity and sewage treatment they now don't have. By demolishing Khan Al-Ahmar, Israel will effectively cut off East Jerusalem from the rest of the West Bank.

Critics say its removal is meant to make room for an Israeli settlement.

Palestinians gesture in front of Israeli forces after the forces removed shacks erected by Palestinian activists to protest against Israel's plan to demolish the Palestinian Bedouin village of Khan Al Ahmar in the occupied West Bank.

It stated that "the demolition of Khan al-Ahmar and the forcible transfer of its residents would constitute a grave breach of global humanitarian law".

The PA further called on Palestinians to come to the streets of Khan al-Ahmar to protest any attempt to demolish the village.

The resolution recalled "that Israel bears full responsibility for providing the necessary services, including education, healthcare and welfare, for the people living under its occupation, in line with the Fourth Geneva Convention".

CBB victor Ryan Thomas reveals he WOULD forgive Roxanne Pallett
Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom received more than 11,000 complaints about Pallett's behaviour. However, Ryan's message to Roxanne was warm and merciful.

A joint statement by France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom issued last week warned that Khan al-Ahmar is "located in a sensitive location in Area C, of strategic importance for preserving the contiguity of a future Palestinian state".

Mladenov said the planned demolition of the village would "undermine the prospect for two-state solution and is against worldwide law".

Khan al-Ahmar's demolition had already been approved by the court in May, which the judges noted in their decision last week.

The judges also rejected the petitioners' request to delay Khan al-Ahmar's demolition until an alternative site is found for its residents.

Israeli authorities say that village was built illegally, without proper permits, and that it is too close the the major roadway. Palestinians say that the required building permits are impossible to obtain.

The Israeli military later said that the prefabricated buildings had been demolished because they "had been built by representatives of the Palestinian National Authority as a gesture of protest and a challenge to the Israeli Supreme Court" after it authorized the evictions from Khan al-Ahmar.
