Another Palestinian village being 'wiped off the map'

An Israeli court will soon decide on the demolition order of Khan Al Ahmar, a Palestinian village in the occupied West Bank - so that Israeli homes can be built in its place.

Regavim, A right wing Israeli settler group, is lobbying for the move, which would make about about 100 families homeless.

Israeli authorities have already given orders to knock down a school and many shacks in the village.

Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland reports from Khan Al Ahmar, one of the many Palestinian communities under threat.

  • They (israel) doesnt care about humanity. i remember there is one case where a palestinian build a new house on their land but cannot live there. Arguing it's illegal, the house surprising giving away to israel family???

    Another case where there is a 2 story-house. The original ladder to get to the upper house is totally damaged. The owner have tried plenty of times to get permit to build a new one. After many years of waiting and not surprisingly failed to get permit, they build the ladder reg More..

  • Lazy muslims. They've had 60 years since originally being displace to get off their asses and make something of life. Losers. Instead they find apologists with british accents to present their "case" to the world. Once again, losers.

  • They were displaced because they were weak then. They're displaced because they're weak today. Nobody wants them on "their" land because they're worthless, lazy, muslim trash. Why isn't hamas there with all their "soldiers" to stop these "infidels"?
