Dear all,

We have just received the news that the legal aid provider JLAC managed to obtain an injunction order for Khan al-Ahmar Kurshan community. This temporary injunction prevents the demolition of homes of the eight families that received 24h eviction notices on Sunday 6 May. It is worth mentioning that the injunction does not have an expiration date. However, the Israeli Civil Administration has seven days to provide its response to the court regarding this decision. This response will guide any further decisions of the court.

But to stick with the good news, the community is safe for the time being.

I just wanted to pass along a big thank you to all of you who have been working on this case quite literally night and day. It is great to see people mobilize around an issue.

Keep up the good work and keep the pressure on!

We will, of course, keep you posted if/when something new arises.
