Khan el-Ahmar

Khan Al-Ahmar in Wikipedia

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.[1] 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.[2]
