Khan al-Ahmar is a Bedouin village in the West Bank,
Palestinian territories with approximately 100 families as of
2010. The residents of the village are mostly refugees due to
the 1948 Arab–Israeli War and the 1948 Palestinian exodus.
Wedged by illegal Israeli settlements Ma'ale Adumim and Kfar
Adumim, Khan al-Ahmar was slated for destruction in February
2010 after being targeted by the Israeli settler group Regavim
due to what they called illegal buildings. In July 2009,
the village made headlines due to the Israeli authorities
plans to demolish a school made of tyres built by the Italian
aid organization Vento Di Terra (Wind of Earth). Rabbis for
Human Rights, a Jewish human rights organization, was also
involved with the school and village.
