Answered on

13 October 2017

The UK has provided approximately £120,000 over the last four years to Khan al-Ahmar through the Norwegian Refugee Council’s (NRC) legal aid programme to support communities facing demolition. Approximately £51,000 was also provided in the last four years through our share of the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) support to NRC for legal aid work.

The UK is gravely concerned about proposals to demolish Khan al-Ahmar and has raised the issue with the Israeli authorities.
