The demolition of Bedouin villages is postponed temporarily

Israel halts demolition of Bedouin village, for now

Israeli soldiers resorted, Friday, to the excessive use of force against dozens of Palestinian, global and Israeli peace activists, holding a nonviolent procession in the al-Khan al-Ahmar Palestinian Bedouin community, east of occupied Jerusalem, wounding ten, and abducted one after injuring him.

"It is our policy and it will be put in place". "I have no intention of postponing this until further notice, contrary to reports, but rather for a short, defined period of time". "The duration we will give to evacuate it in consent will be decided by the cabinet", said Netanyahu.

The expulsion plan had included relocation to an area about 12 km (seven miles) away next to a landfill.

In the weeks following the decision, local and worldwide activists have been camping out at the village in anticipation of the demolition, joined by dozens of journalists. "The decision was made in complete contrast to the position of the defense minister", he said.

The government has yet to respond to the proposals, Jabareen said, refusing to divulge the identity of the person attempting to mediate between the sides.

Al-Khan Al-Ahmar Bedouin community is located to the east of Jerusalem and resided by 200 Palestinian Bedouins, 95 percent of whom are refugees registered with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).

"Our strategy is to stay in our land, and we will not leave it", Eid al-Jahalin told AFP.

3 strong earthquakes strike off British Columbia
The first quake struck off at 6.39am BST, while the second one went off at the same location at 7.16am BST. Several powerful earthquakes have been reported near Vancouver Island, Canada, including a magnitude 6.8.

Walid Assaf said Sunday that preparations for winter in solidarity tents will start on Sunday morning, adding that "aggressions against Palestinians and activists are escalating on daily basis".

"We do not trust the Jews", he said.

While Palestinian protests, including demonstrations and confrontations in the village are still ongoing, Israeli army radio reported today that the residents of Khan al-Ahmar agreed to evacuate the village "voluntarily" and that this was the reason why Netanyahu announced the postponement of their evacuation by force.

Netanyahu's move raised the ire of his two major coalition partners, with Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman saying he opposed the decision to delay the demolition. The International Criminal Court's chief prosecutor says such a move could constitute a war crime.

The entire village is set to be razed to the ground by military forces under the "E1 Jerusalem Plan" meant to encircle the eastern part of Jerusalem with Israeli colonial settlements in order to encircle Jerusalem and claim it for Israel, denying the Palestinian people's historical and ongoing claim to the city.

Israel has threatened the demolition of the village as it is built "illegally" i.e. without the permission of Israel authority.
