Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the West Bank village of Khan al-Ahmar located east of Jerusalem will be evacuated.

“It’s a short ruling, that’s our policy and it will be done. Not intended for postponing this, but for a short, defined period of time,” he stated.

Earlier, Israeli media distributed a statement from Netanyahu’s office, claiming that Tel Aviv decided to indefinitely freeze the forced evacuation of the village.

It comes days after the International Criminal Court (ICC) warned that Israel’s planned “evacuation by force” of the village could amount to “war crimes.”

The people of Khan al-Ahmar have been anticipating the destruction of their homes for years, as the Israeli state eyes a settlement expansion.

The village is home to the Bedouin Jahalin tribe, which was moved from its original home in the Negev desert by the military in the 1950s.

How about the Zionists just leave to wherever THEY came from? Instead of continuing the expropriation of Palestinian property?

e.g. Ottoman Empire brought 5,000 from now Saudi-Arabia to build the Haifa-Damascus railroad in 1902…
How can you go from 15k to 900k+ in 30 years?

How funny Arab nations didn’t used to apply the Geneva convention, e.g. Syria torturing and killing Tsahal prisoners in 1973, not speaking about many terrorist actions by Syria, Libya, Iran, etc…

Actually, from ALL MENA countries, it’s Israel having the best records in human rights and doing the less war crimes, which usually are punished.

Moreover, Israel isn’t signatory to the ICC, so ICC hasn’t any jurisdiction. There is not a single Arab country not using torture which is a crime against humanity, BTW.
