    The European Union demanded that Israel cancel plans to evict Bedouin squatters from illegally-erected structures just east of Jerusalem, and condemned a planned housing project in the area for the Israeli town of Maaleh Adumim. Israeli authorities recently announced plans to demolish the Bedouin encampment known as Khan al-Ahmar. The illegal community, which lies entirely in Area C under full Israeli control, was established without any building permits. The encampment is located in the strategically important E-1 area between Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim, one of the largest Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria. Israel also recently approved housing permits for...

    The European Union rebuked Israel on Friday, condemning the Jewish state for the demolition of illegal Arab buildings and demanding Israel refrain from further demolitions. In a statement released by the local Office of the European Union Representative, the EU slammed Israel over the planned eviction of Bedouin squatters who established illegal settlements in the northern Jordan Valley in eastern Israel over the past decade. Ein al-Hilweh and Umm Jamal, home to an estimated 400 Bedouin squatters, were first established in the mid-2000s. The two illegal settlements, which have sprawled around roads and intersections, have hindered traffic in the area,...

    Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) spoke on Saturday night about US Secretary of State John Kerry's speech, as well as about her party's views on the annexation of Judea and Samaria. Regarding Kerry, Shaked said, "He needs to learn to respect Israeli democracy. I think his decision to end his term with a speech discussing the Israeli-Arab conflict shows a detachment from reality." She also said she hopes the new Trump administration will work together with the Jewish Home party on the issue of annexing Area C. "We want to annex Ma'ale Adumim. And at some point, we want...

    The UN's "Palestinian refugee agency" UNRWA on Sunday urged the international community to oppose Israeli plans to relocate thousands of Palestinian Bedouin from the E1 and Maaleh Adumim areas east of Jerusalem, to the area around Jericho, next to the Dead Sea. "If such a plan were implemented this would ... give rise to concerns that it amounts to a 'forcible transfer' in contravention of the Fourth Geneva Convention" banning involuntary population relocation in occupied territory, UNRWA Commissioner General Pierre Krahenbuhl said. "It might also make way for further Israeli illegal settlement expansion, further compromising the viability of a two-state...

    Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz called, Thursday, for Israeli construction in the E-1 corridor between Jerusalem and the eastern suburb of Ma'aleh Adumim. Addressing a rally following a march from Ma'aleh Adumim to Mevasseret Adumin in the E-1 corridor, the Likud lawmaker said, "Whoever opposes it opposes the Ma'aleh Adumim bloc being part of the state of Israel and shouldn't tell stories." Rejecting the threats of boycotts against Israel, Katz continued, "Once we all talked about the merits of the father. Then we talked about security. After that it was the demographic problem and today it's the boycotts. We're not afraid...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has ordered security forces to immediately evacuate the Arabs who have gathered in the area between Maale Adumim and Jerusalem, known as E1. To this end, the State said it would, on Saturday evening, request that the High Court of Justice rescind the injunction that it had issued, which is delaying the evacuation. Until the High Court responds to the State's motion, the Prime Minister has ordered the closure of access roads to the area in order to prevent gatherings. At this stage, the area has been declared a closed military zone and IDF forces have...
