Bulk407OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-Head of the Palestinian Committee against the Wall and Settlements Walid Assaf declared on Wednesday that residents of khan al-Ahmar would not agree to be transferred anywhere.

Speaking to Voice of Palestine radio, Assaf said that the committee’s lawyers were informed of the residents’ decision, saying that lawyers would be delivering the residents' response to the Israeli High Court.

Khan al-Ahmar residents' decision came in response to a proposal by the Israeli government, submitted to the court on Tuesday, that it is willing to move, resettle residents of the village in another area in the Jordan Valley if they agree to leave peacefully.

Israeli authorities have threatened to demolish Khan al-Ahmar for settlement expansion profit. The decision would leave more than 35 Palestinian families displaced.
