International Condemnation for Israeli demolition of Khan al-Ahmar

Many International parties and world bodies condemned Israeli measures of  demolishing Kan Al-Ahmar.

France on Tuesday asked Israel to cancel its plan to demolish Khan al-Ahmar village, which is located east of Occupied Jerusalem.The French Foreign Ministry issued a statement calling on the Israeli authorities to cancel their project to demolish Khan al-Ahmar village, stressing that the Bedouin community is "necessary for the two-state solution and the future Palestinian state".The Ministry expressed France's concern over the forcible transfer of the Palestinian families of Khan al-Ahmar.The United Nations as well as many European governments have pressured Israel to stop the demolition of Khan al-Ahmar since it would separate the West Bank's northern part from the south, thus making it more difficult to establish an independent Palestinian state in the future.Khan al-Ahmar is inhabited by about 200 Palestinians, 53% of whom are children, and 95% are refugees registered with the UNRWA.Israel's Supreme Court in May officially ruled for demolishing the Bedouin village and its school which is attended by 170 students living in Khan al-Ahmar and neighboring communities.
