Israeli Soldiers Throw Sound Grenades at EU Diplomats Bringing Aid to Displaced Palestinian Families


A Palestinian village home to 120 people had its houses, kindergarten and shepherding stables demolished this week by Israeli authorities.

This came after the Supreme Court ruled its inhabitants – some of whom have lived on the land for generations – didn’t have proper building permits.
The Palestinian Bedouin village of Khirbet Al-Makhul, located in the occupied territories, is the third such village to be demolished by Israel since August. After it was destroyed on Monday, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) attempted to deliver emergency aid to the displaced residents on Tuesday and Wednesday, but were stopped by Israeli soldiers.
When a collection of diplomats from France, Britain, Spain, Ireland, Australia and the European Union’s political office arrived on Friday, they were met with force and sound grenades.
