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.
