Urgent action: Write to the Foreign Secretary
On Wednesday 4 July, an Israeli bulldozer began the demolition of the village of Khan al-Ahmar in the occupied West Bank. This latest act of destruction laid bare Israel’s determination to sweep aside Palestinian families and livelihoods in order to make way for Jewish-only settlement expansion. To the east of Khan al-Ahmar lies the settlement of Maale Adumim and, to the west, the settlement of Kfar Adumim.
Despite the temporary injunction against the demolition of Al Khan al Ahmar village issued by the Israeli High Court, after huge international pressure, we would like to ask you to take a minute to write to the Foreign Secretary, to ask him to condemn the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians Bedouin residents of Khan al-Ahmar, and to impose immediate sanctions against illegal Israeli settlements.
