«Israeli» Court Approves Razing West Bank Bedouin Village
Local Editor

The "Israeli" entity's so-called "Supreme Court" has ruled in favor of demolishing a Palestinian Bedouin village in the occupied West Bank, despite a campaign by European governments to save it.

Campaigners said the hearing had been the final appeal open to the village of Khan al-Ahmar, located close to several "Israeli" settlements east of al-Quds [Jerusalem].

It was unclear when the demolition of the village, home to about 180 residents, would take place.

In its ruling on Thursday, the court said it found "no reason to intervene in the decision of the ‘minister of defense' to implement the demolition orders issued against the illegal structures in Khan al-Ahmar".

The residents would be relocated elsewhere, it added, in a move critics say amounts to forcible transfer.

The court ruled that the village was built without the relevant building permits.

Such permits are nearly impossible to obtain for Palestinians in "Israeli"-occupied areas of the West Bank.

"This verdict takes away the absolute minimal protection the Bedouin communities received until recently from the court," Shlomo Lecker, the lawyer representing the village, said in a statement.

"By any standard of international humanitarian law, the verdict is an approval by the ‘Israeli' court of a crime against humanity."

The decision was likely to be met with anger by European governments, which had been fighting to save the village.

Last week the head of the British consulate-general in al-Quds visited the village and said in a video clip published online that the planned demolition was a "matter of great concern for the UK and indeed for the European Union".

Earlier on Thursday, "Israeli" war minister, Avigdor Lieberman, announced 2,500 new settlement units in the occupied West Bank. All settlements are considered illegal under international law.
