DEMOLITION PLANS IN KHAN AL-AHMAR VILLAGE IN THE WEST BANK
EDM #1169
Tabled 17 April 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House notes with concern the upcoming Israeli High Court hearing on 25 April 2018 on the demolition of buildings in the village of Khan al-Ahmar in the West Bank; condemns those plans and the impact they will have on communities in the occupied Palestinian territories; believes that the demolition of these buildings would be a flagrant disregard by Israel of both the will of the international community and the international legal order; further notes that the coercive environment of threatened demolition, illegal settlement expansion and forcible displacement are a daily reality faced by communities in the occupied Palestinian territories; is concerned that such demolitions form part of Israel's E1 plan which will cut off Palestinians living in East Jerusalem from the rest of the West Bank, jeopardising the contiguity of any future Palestinian state and thus undermining an already fragile two-state solution; welcomes the actions taken by the EU in issuing a demarche to Israel; reminds the Government of its duties as a signatory to the Convention of the Rights of the Child and the Fourth Geneva Convention; and calls on the Government to exert meaningful and decisive political, diplomatic and economic pressure on the Israeli authorities to halt the demolitions programme as a whole and, in particular, to abandon attempts to demolish the school and other buildings in Khan al-Ahmar.
