Khan al Ahmar Gets Another Extension – Why?

The High Court of Justice handed down a decision Monday evening granting the state an additional three months to explain why the illegal outpost in the Adumim region has not been dismantled despite six “final” High Court decisions. The deadline is pushed off until February 1, 2023, three months after Israel’s upcoming national elections. This points once again to the crying need for reform in the High Court.

“Time and time again, the High Court has declared the outpost at Khan al Ahmar illegal and called for the relocation of the squatters – but Khan al Ahmar remains,” said Regavim Attorney Yael Cinnamon.

Meir Deutsch, Director General of Regavim stated, “Meanwhile, Khan al Ahmar continues to grow, dozens more Palestinian Authority outposts are swallowing up the open spaces of Area C by replicating this proven method of occupation, and the High Court, despite its ‘displeasure’, is allowing the government to continue to sit idly by.“
