Bedouin village Abu Nawwar destroyed along West Bank; protests erupt in Khan al-Ahmar
In an appeal to the Israeli authorities, the OHCHR spokesperson said that if the demolitions went ahead, "people would lose their homes, children would lose their schools" and residents "would lose their community". In addition, three police officers and 35 protesters were reported injured. "If not, it means you're pushing this region towards a deeper hole of violence and counter-violence and extremes".

Israel authorities say they have offered villagers a relocation site. She warned the eviction would move Israel onto a path of "full fledged apartheid statehood, with no sustainable future ahead".
"Accordingly, the preparation of the routes necessary to enforce the warrants has begun, as well as infrastructure works in an alternative area for the residents who will be evacuated".
Such an action would be considered a violation of the Geneva Conventions.
The Arab League (AL) on Thursday condemned in the strongest terms against Israeli violent dislodging the Palestinian Bedouin communities of Khan al-Ahmar and Abu Nuwar in the West Bank, the AL said in a statement.
The Supreme Court injunction, issued a day after Israeli security forces sparked scuffles at Khan al-Ahmar by moving in bulldozers, gave the state until July 11 to respond to the villagers' contention that they had been unfairly denied building permits, lawyer Alaa Mahajna told Reuters.
Israel's top court suspended on Thursday the planned demolition of a Bedouin village in the occupied West Bank whose fate has become a focus of Palestinian protests and global concern, a lawyer for the residents said.
While demolitions were on-going today the UK's Parliament met for an emergency discussion on the demolitions. Its destruction will make way for the expansion and connection of large settlement blocs, ultimately surrounding the entire area of East Jerusalem with illegal Israeli settlements and further restricting access to the city for Palestinians.
Labour party parliamentarian Richard Burden said, "Speaking plainly, it is state sponsored theft".
Khan al-Ahmar's residents belong to the Jahalin tribe of Bedouin who were expelled from southern Israel by the military in the 1950s.
The village is located in the 60 percent of the West Bank known as Area C, which remains under exclusive Israeli control and is home to dozens of Israeli settlements.
"These pastoral communities are mostly Palestine refugees - originally displaced from their tribal lands in the Negev".
"Words of warning to Israel are not enough".
