Israeli police accompanied by three military bulldozers entered the village of Khan al-Ahmar in the occupied West Bank on Monday, ahead of a planned demolition of the village by the Israeli army.

Footage shows Israeli police clashing with activists and inhabitants of the village, as a bulldozer works on moving ground.

Three activists were arrested by Israeli police, according to reports. On the same day, Khan al-Ahmar was reportedly flooded with sewage water by Israeli settlers of the illegal Kfar Adumim settlement.

Israel intends to demolish Khan al-Ahmar, a Jahalin Bedouin village home to around 1,500 people, and forcibly remove its residents in order to build a settlement in its place.

Israel’s High Court ruled in May that Khan al-Ahmar’s residents could be transferred to a location next to a waste site in East Jerusalem, despite their opposition to being forcibly displaced.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

They should compensate ’em with camels, tents and send ’em back to their desert in KSA.
