Dozens of Palestinians have protested against threats made by top Israeli politicians to imminently carry out the forced displacement

of the Palestinian Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar on the eastern outskirts of Jerusalem, home to at least 180 people.

The protest took place on Monday after far-right politician and Minister of National Security Itamar Ben-Gvir said

he would push ahead with the village’s forced removal and plans emerged of a visit to the site by far-right ministers, including Ben-Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich.

A number of politicians from the Israeli parliament’s biggest party, Likud, eventually did gather near the village before later leaving.

Ben-Gvir on Saturday said the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “will not hold Jews to one legal standard and Arabs to another”

after an illegal Jewish settlement outpost in the northern occupied West Bank was cleared by Israeli forces.

However, Palestinians have decried what they argue is the false equivalency between Khan al-Ahmar and Israeli settlements, which are illegal under international law.
