Israel steps up land grabbing

KHAN AL AHMAR: Israeli forces on Thursday dismantled five corrugated metal shacks that had been set up by Palestinian activists protesting the anticipated razing of a nearby West Bank hamlet.

Protest leader Abdullah Abu Rahmeh said about 200 soldiers converged on the area of the Khan Al Ahmar encampment before dawn, dismantled the shacks and loaded the parts onto trucks. The encampment itself was not touched.

Protesters chanted “Out, out, terrorist army,” as the trucks and soldiers left after daybreak.

On Sept.5, Israel’s supreme court upheld an order to raze the village on grounds that it was built without the proper permits.

It is however extremely rare for Palestinians to obtain Israeli permits to build in Area C of the West Bank, where Khan Al Ahmar is situated.

A temporary stay against the village’s demolition expired on Wednesday, meaning the army can implement the court order when it sees fit.
