Stop the demolition of Khan al Ahmar School

I have joined with 25 other politicians to call on the UK Government to exert decisive political, diplomatic, and economic pressure on the Israeli authorities so they realise the regressive consequences of demolishingdemolition of the Palestinian Bedouin community of Khan al Ahmar in Area C of the West Bank. The planned demolition of the community would also include Khan al Ahmar’s school, made of tyres and mud, which educates 170 children aged between 6 and 14. The demolition follows the recent destruction of other schools in Area C such as the donor-funded kindergarten at Jabal al Baba on the 21st of August this year.
