The Israeli army has drastically initiated actions to demolish Khan al Ahmar by starting to bulldoze and destroy the main roads leading into the village. 

Young people from Khan al Ahmar stood in front of the bulldozers to stop them working.
Subsequently, the army starting attacking and beating them viciously, including women.
As of noon they had arrested two people.
We consider these actions are an act aiming at annexation and the Judaisation of the West Bank by the Israeli Government.
They are aiming to completely encircle Jerusalem and separate it from the West Bank – by expanding settlements in the area.
This is not an attack only on Khan al Ahmar but on all Bedouin communities in Palestine, particularly for those children who travel to attend the school built in the village.
Furthermore, it is an act of ethnic cleansing.
The Palestinian Medical Relief Society are currently at Khan al Ahmar to assist those injured by the Israeli forces during protest.
The residents and activists continue to be in direct confrontation with the Israeli army.
At least four people have been taken to hospital, one with a serious injury.
