A school serving Palestinian children is being threatened with demolition in the West Bank community of Khan al Ahmar.

The land that the community lives on has been slated for the expansion of an Israeli settlement in the area.

Khan Al Ahmar and other Bedouin communities in the area, more than 2,300 people in all, risk displacement.

The spokesman for the UN Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) Chris Gunnes tells Reem Abaza that story of the school is part of a wider problem of eviction and demolition.
