Israeli settlements and the encirclement of East Jerusalem
Date created :
The situation in Khan al Ahmar has been the centre of attention in the past months. This Bedouin community in the West Bank is under threat of being expelled and destroyed by the Israeli authorities. If it's attracted so much attention, it's because Khan al Ahmar is located in a strategic zone, just east of Jerusalem.
And the issue is bigger than this small village of 200 inhabitants. Palestinians and NGOs say that Israel is seeking to eliminate any Palestinian presence, including these Bedouin communities, in order to fully integrate Jerusalem into Israel. Report by Antoine Mariotti, Cécile Galluccio and Irris Makler.
