Noor55OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-About 35 Palestinians were injured Wednesday when the Israeli police quelled a protest held in solidarity with the residents of al-Khan al-Ahmar village in Jerusalem which is threatened with demolition at any moment.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said that four Palestinian citizens were transferred to hospitals for treatment while the rest were treated in the field.

Palestinian media sources said that the Israeli police arrested 8 Palestinians in the attack. Israeli policemen were seen assaulting a Palestinian young woman, ripping off her hijab and dragging her on the ground before she was detained.

They explained that Israeli police violently attacked Palestinian activists and residents of al-Khan al-Ahmar as they stood on guard to Israeli bulldozers attempting to demolish the Bedouin village.

Israel's Supreme Court in May ruled for demolishing al-Khan al-Ahmar, home to 180 Palestinians, under the pretext of being unlicensed.

Al-Khan al-Ahmar is one of 46 Bedouin communities in the West Bank threatened with forced displacement. These communities are located in Area C which is exclusively administered by Israel based on the Oslo Accords signed in 1993.
