State to ask High Court for further delay in razing of West Bank Bedouin village – The Times of Israel

The government will file a request with the High Court of Justice tomorrow to delay by six months the planned demolition of Khan al-Ahmar, a Bedouin village in the West Bank that Israel says was constructed illegally.
A statement from the Foreign Ministry announcing the move says that the request is “based on interagency staff work that includes a diplomatic opinion of the Foreign Ministry.”
In July, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid sent a request for a further delay to the attorney general and cabinet secretary, saying that the new government needed more time to study the matter after.
