Israeli occupation forces, on Sunday morning, served notices to the residents of Al-Khan Al-Ahmar, east of Jerusalem, ordering them to demolish their homes, by themselves, before a deadline of 1 October, 2018.

Then demolition notice said, according to the PNN:

“Inhabitants of Khan al-Ahmar
By the High Court decision you must demolish all buildings within the Khan al-Ahmar no later than 1 October 2018.”

“If you refuse, the authorities will enforce demolition orders as per court decision and the law.
Any citizen wishes to receive help in demolition or transporting goods must go to the liason office and call this number…”

In response, Palestinian national and Islamic voices called for wide participation in the permanent sit-in protest on the land of the  village.

An official statement said, according to the PNN, that “this week is the time to resolve the possibility of occupation to implement the colonial plan to demolish Khan Al-Ahmar, with the escalation of measures and the Israeli siege, and calls to intensify the daily presence in the village, 24/7,  to face any attempts to forcibly occupy and evacuate the village.”

The statement added that Friday prayers will be held in the sit-in tent, to confirm the rejection of policies of forced displacement, and the support of the Bedouin communities’ steadfastness in the face of occupation, and protection of the eastern gate of occupied Jerusalem.
