On Wednesday, September 5, Israel's Supreme Court authorized the demolition of Khan Al-Ahmar and the eviction of the village's residents. Israel plans to relocate residents near the village of Abu Dis. According to local sources, multiple petitions against the demolition of Khan Al-Ahmar were rejected by the Supreme Court. Protests in the area are to be expected in the coming days. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are to be anticipated.
Individuals present in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments and to avoid all protests and demonstrations due to the persistent risk of violence. Some Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and areas near the Israeli-Lebanese, Israeli-Syrian, and Israeli-Egyptian borders.
