Amnesty: Israel’s Destruction of Palestinian Village Is ‘War Crime’

Amnesty International has deplored Israel’s destruction of the Palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar, saying the illegitimate move constitutes a war crime.

The rights groups’ statement accused Israel of shamefully carrying out an unlawful attack on the Bedouin village, which will leave more than 170 Bedouin Palestinians, including 92 children, displaced.

Saleh Higazi, Head of Office in Jerusalem for Amnesty International, said:

Under Israeli plans, the residents will be relocated next to a nearby landfill before being moved next to a sewage plant.
