Khan-Al-Ahmar community in Area C receives European Union Heads of Mission

A group of European Union Heads of Mission in Jerusalem and Ramallah visited today the West Bank community of Khan-Al-Ahmar. The diplomats had the opportunity to gain a first-hand impression of the current situation in the area, visit the Bedouin village of Khan-Al-Ahmar and the school serving some 90 children of the community.

The group met representatives of the Jahalin Bedouin community and was briefed on recent developments with regards to the community's school, the latest legal proceedings and Israeli plans for potential displacement of the population.

EU Foreign Ministers at the 14 May 2012 Council adopted strong Conclusions on the importance of maintaining the viability of the two-state solution. The worsening living conditions of the Palestinian population in Area C as well as plans of forced transfer of the Bedouin communities, in particular from the wider E1 area threaten to make a two-state solution impossible.
