PLEASE TAKE URGENT ACTION!
You may have seen news reports that the entire villages of Khan Al Ahmarand Susiya in the occupied West Bank could be demolished any day now.
If the demolitions and forcible displacement of the villagers go ahead they will be in grave violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention and will leave hundreds of men, women and children homeless. Israeli human rights group and United Church solidarity partner B'Tselem say that the forcible transfer of an entire Palestinian community in the occupied Palestinian territories would be "virtually unprecedented" since the Israeli military occupation began in 1967.
Final court hearings for the communities are due to be heard on September 25 (for Khan Al Ahmar) and October 1 (for Susiya) during which the judges are expected to authorise the demolitions. If so, the demolitions could take place as soon as the next day.
The communities have asked for all our efforts to help stop these demolitions
Many of you have written in the past to ask the Canadian government to take actions to stop the demolition of Khan Al Ammar and Susiya.
We ask that you write to your member of parliament and Minister Freeland again.
