Germany appeals Israel to halt demolitions
By Monitoring DeskFriday – July 6, 2018
According to an official statement, the demolition and the resulting relocation of its some 170 inhabitants – including over 90 children – appears imminent.
Should this occur, it will be a severe blow to the prospects for Palestinian development in area C of the West Bank.
Khan al-Ahmar is situated close to the strategically important E1 area between east Jerusalem and Ma’ale Adumim settlement, where Israeli construction will significantly impair the possibility of a contiguous Palestinian State.
Further demolitions in areas of importance to the construction of Israeli settlements are to be feared.
In this context, we noted with the greatest concern that several houses were already demolished Wednesday in Abu Nuwar village, which directly borders on Ma’ale Adumim.
