Israel’s occupation forces entered the threatened Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar today Sunday September 23rd and handed out printed notices in which the residents were ordered to dismantle their buildings and leave by October 1st or face fines.
Khan al-Ahmar, east of occupied East Jerusalem along the highway to Jericho in the Jordan Valley, is one of the Jahalin Bedouin villages with a total population of 1200-1300 people that are targeted for ethnic cleansing by Israeli occupation.
The Jahalin Bedouins were already once ethnically cleansed by Israel from the Negev, with the date given in different sources as 1951 or 1952. They say they are willing to leave their current villages if Israel allows them back to their old homes in the Negev, which Israel refuses.
Instead Israel says that the Jahalin Bedouin have two options: Either to go live beside a garbage dump in occupied East Jerusalem or next to a sewage procession plant where human habitation is said to be officially forbidden.
