European states urge Israel not to demolish Bedouin village

September 10, 2018

BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Britain called on Israel not to raze the Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar in the occupied West Bank after Israel’s top court on Wednesday cleared the way for its demolition.

“We therefore join High Representative/Vice-President (Federica) Mogherini in reiterating our call to the Israeli government not to go ahead with its plan to demolish the village – including its school – and displace its residents,” the countries said in a joint statement.

“The consequences a demolition and displacement would have on the residents of this community, including their children, as well as on the prospects of the two-state solution would be very serious,” they added.
