JERUSALEM, September 13, 2018 (WAFA) – Israeli forces raided early Thursday an area near Khan al-Ahmar, east of Jerusalem, where Palestinian activists had set up this week five caravans in an attempt to prevent Israeli takeover of Palestinian land and removed the caravans, according to the activists.
They said that an army force raided the area, which was named by the activists as Wadi al-Ahmar, and removed the caravans without any incident.
The forces had closed off the area before removing the caravans and kept the activists away from the site.
The activists set up the caravans in defiance of army attempts to destroy Khan al-Ahmar village in order to build a settlement on its ruins.
