Israel delayed demoliton of Sussiya and al-Khan al-Ahmar

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had decided to delay the demolition of Susiya village, south of al-Khalil, due to “political and security considerations,” Haaretz reported.

Two sources confirmed to Haaretz that the demolition was scheduled to take place this week.

The Palestinian residents of Susiya and al-Khan al-Ahmar villages, in al-Khalil and Jerusalem respectively, are about to face a mass deportation operation. Both villages have dozens of mobile homes, mostly tents or tin houses, as a result of repeated demolitions.
