The Israeli government's forced expulsion of the Jahalin from their villages has done more than simply relocate them; it has destroyed their traditional way of life. She warned the eviction would move Israel onto a path of "full fledged apartheid statehood, with no sustainable future ahead". Jabal West is a proposed relocation site outfitted with an apartment building and buffered by a city dump.

The Supreme Court spokesman was not available for a comment.

But the new site is adjacent to a landfill, and rights advocates say that a forcible transfer of the residents would violate global law applying to occupied territory.

A Palestinian man walks in the Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar in the occupied West Bank July 6, 2018.

As part of interim peace deals in the 1990s, the West Bank was carved up into autonomous and semi-autonomous Palestinian areas, known as Areas A and B, and Area C, which is home to some 400,000 Israeli settlers.

The confrontation came after activists said the Israeli military had issued a warrant to the 173 residents of Khan al-Ahmar on Tuesday, authorising soldiers to seize access roads to the village.

Activists say the villagers had little alternative but to build without Israeli construction permits, as the documents are nearly never issued to Palestinians for building in parts of the West Bank, such as Khan al-Ahmar, where Israel has full control over civilian affairs.

While demolitions were on-going today the UK's Parliament met for an emergency discussion on the demolitions.

Erekat said it is time for Netanyahu to "shoulder his responsibility as the occupying power in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Jerusalem".

Labour party parliamentarian Richard Burden said, "Speaking plainly, it is state sponsored theft".

Palestinian activists and officials say the scheme to displace Palestinian residents in the area aims to expand illegal settlements, isolate East Jerusalem from Palestinian communities in the West Bank, as well as to effectively cut off the southern and northern West Bank, forcing Palestinians to make even lengthier detours to travel from one place to another.

But as Khan al-Ahmar residents gathered for Friday prayers under a tarpaulin strung from trees next to the village school made of mud and used tyres, the mood was one of reprieve rather than victory.

Around 7,000 people from 46 Bedouin communities live in the area. In the weeks since the Israeli High Court gave its final go-ahead for the village's destruction, Khan al-Ahmar has again become a site of frenzied activity, including protests, press conferences, and Israeli and worldwide activists and journalists driving up and down the unpaved road that leads to the village.

Many European countries have also called on Israel to halt the demolitions.
