Israeli bulldozers back at work at Khan al-Ahmar

JERUSALEM, Tuesday, Israeli bulldozers resumed work on Tuesday at Khan al-Ahmar village, east of Jerusalem, leveling land around and inside the village apparently in preparation for removing it.

Activists on a 24-hour vigil at the Palestinian village to ward off Israeli attempts to destroy it and displace its residents said the bulldozers arrived early at the site and resumed leveling the land and opening roads to facilitate entry of army units when time comes to destroying the village, which could happen at any time after the Israeli High Court gave the army the green light to destroy it.

The bulldozers carried out some work in the village on Monday during which activists and residents clashed with the Israeli soldiers providing protection to the bulldozers. Several were injured and few detained.
