Palestinian Territories – Suspension of the demolition of the Palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar

France takes note of the decision by the Israeli prime minister to postpone the demolition of the Palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar (West Bank).

France, in collaboration with its European partners, has repeatedly called on the Israeli authorities not to proceed with the destruction of Khan al-Ahmar and the forced evacuation of its inhabitants.

We call on the Israeli authorities to permanently abandon their plans to demolish Khan al-Ahmar and to remove the uncertainty surrounding the fate of this village, which is located in an area that is key to the contiguity of a future Palestinian state and therefore the viability of the two-state solution.
