The Israeli government has told Palestinians living in a Bedouin village in the occupied West Bank to demolish their homes within the next eight days and leave.
Today on Sunday the warning comes just weeks after Israel’s Supreme Court rejected appeals against demolition.
The Israeli defence ministry that oversees civilian affairs in the West Bank said in statement: `Pursuant to a supreme Court ruling, residents of Khan al-Ahmar received a notice today requiring them to demolish all the structure on the site by October 1st, 2018.
`If you refuse, the authorities will enforce demolition orders as per a court decision and the law.’
Earlier this month, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and spain renewed their call for Israel not to demolish the village, warning of the consequences for residents, as well as `the prospects of the two-state solution’.
