Israeli occupation forces surrounded and sealed off several roads leading to the Bedouin village of Khan Al-Ahmar, east of Jerusalem in the central West Bank district, today.

Locals said that Israeli forces were deployed across the village, while military bulldozers entered the area and proceeded to seal off the roads in an attempt to prevent activists from reaching Khan Al-Ahmar to gather in solidarity with residents.

Sources added that bulldozers also sealed off the main road that leads to the village, and began to raze lands.
