The Foreign Ministry expresses concern over the risk of demolition of the Bedouin village of Khan Al Ahmar

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is following with great attention the latest developments in the Palestinian territories and especially the risk of the imminent demolition of the Bedouin village of Khan Al Ahmar, located in the so-called E1 Zone between Jerusalem and the Israeli Settlement in Ma’ale Adumim, and the so-called “Rubber Tyre School” financed by the Italian cooperation service and attended by 160 students from five different communities.

The demolition of the village would undermine the construction of a prospective adjacent Palestinian State and the subsequent two-State solution.

It is for this reason, as well as for humanitarian reasons and to comply with international law, that the Italian Foreign Ministry relaunches the request that has often been addressed to Israeli Authorities not to proceed to implement the aforesaid provisions.  

In reaffirming that the policy to expand settlements is in violation of international law and risks making the two-State solution unfeasible, the Italian Foreign Ministry also expresses great concern over the approval of more than 3,000 dwelling units in the West Bank, including in the settlement of Kfar Adumim, located near the village of Khan Al Ahmar.
