On May 16th 2018, the EU Heads of Missions in Jerusalem and Ramallah visited the Bedouin community Khan al Ahmar in the Jerusalem periphery, facing the threat of demolition and forced displacement. The EU Heads of Missions met with community leaders.

Several structures in the community including a school for 170 children have been funded by the EU or EU Member States. A demolition of the school would severely impact on Palestinian children’s right to education.

The EU Heads of Mission called upon Israel not to carry out demolitions in the said community. Displacing the community would be in contravention with Israel’s obligations as an occupying power under international humanitarian law.
