Scuffles break as Israel wanted to raze a Beduin village

  • Bedouin village Abu Nawwar destroyed along West Bank; protests erupt in Khan al-Ahmar

Police arrested three of the internationals, and later confined the rest of the solidarity activists in the village school's courtyard. "But as you can imagine, it really increases the risk of forced transfer, so our main call to the Israelis, is not to proceed with the demolition of this community".

The suspension was issued on Thursday to examine claims about the ownership of the land.

But as Khan al-Ahmar residents gathered for Friday prayers under a tarpaulin strung from trees next to the village school made of mud and used tyres, the mood was one of reprieve rather than victory. "The community is terrified that the bulldozers will be back".

Protesters, including some waving Palestinian flags, tried to block a bulldozer and scuffled with police at Khan al-Ahmar on the eastern outskirts of Jerusalem.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli army and police prevented nine European Union consuls from entering al-Khan al-Ahmar.

But activists say the villagers had little alternative but to build without Israeli construction permits as the documents are near impossible for Palestinians to obtain for that part of the occupied West Bank.

He condemned that the U.S. President Donald Trump administration encouraged Israeli government to "announce the settlements activities, consider settlements as legal, refuse to say two-state solution, cut the aid for the Palestinians, and declare that the PLO is a terrorist organization". He also thanked foreign diplomats and lawyers who worked on the case and visited the community regularly in support.

Worldwide law views the West Bank and East Jerusalem as occupied territories and considers all Jewish settlement building on the land to be illegal.

About 180 residents live in the village.

The episode in Salisbury - the first use of a nerve agent in Europe since the Second World War - sparked worldwide outrage.

"Though various in form, these policies and practices share a common underlying force: the forcible transfer of Palestinians based on their ethnicity, under the semblance of legality".

"Today they are proceeding with infrastructure work to facilitate the demolition and forcible transfer of residents", Amit Gilutz, spokesman for Israeli human rights group B'Tselem, told AFP.

The Israeli defence ministry's COGAT unit for civilian affairs in the occupied Palestinian territories said the demolitions had taken place after the "owners of the buildings failed to utilise the planning procedures to their fullest extent".

Most countries regard settlements Israel has built in the West Bank as illegal. "If they destroy the village, we will build it again here or nearby".

The worldwide community also has a responsibility to ensure respect for the Geneva Conventions.

Erekat slashed that the recent Israeli decision to seize part of Palestinian tax revenues for families of Palestinian prisoners or those injured or killed by Israel is a "tantamount to the destruction of the Palestinian state".

Villagers have vowed not to abandon their land.

Following the attack, several more Israeli settlers attempted to raid Palestinian houses in the area before verbal quarrels erupted between locals and Israeli settlers.
