The UK government urged the Israeli government to reconsider its decision to demolish the Palestinian Bedouin village ‘Khan al-Ahmar’ east of Jerusalem, after the Supreme Court of the Israeli entity rejected the final appeal against the decision.
Minister of State for the Middle East at the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office Alistair Burt said that the UK is very concerned about the impact of the demolition, warning that any forced relocation could constitute forcible transfer of people as far as the United Nations is concerned.
British Foreign secretary Boris Johnson had earlier called on Israel to reconsider the proposals for the demolition of Khan al-Ahmar and the plans to build more than 3,000 new settlement units in the West Bank.
Khan al-Ahmar village is home to 173 people, including 92 children. (QNA)
