The Spanish government denounced the Israeli demolition of Palestinian buildings and structures in the makeshift Bedouin village of Abu Nawar, east of Jerusalem.

The Spanish government, in a statement, further urged Israeli authorities to cancel its plans to demolish the Palestinian community of Khan al-Ahmar, home to more than 180 people, 95 per cent of whom are Palestine refugees.

The statement maintained, according to WAFA, that these demolitions are contrary to international law; they affect poor communities and are a major obstacle to the peace process.

Israeli forces demolished several Palestinian homes in the Palestinian Bedouin community of Abu Nuwar, on Wednesday.
