        The High Court of Justice has approved the planned demolition of a Jahalin-tribe village at Khan al-Ahmar in the West Bank, along with the village’s school made out of tires – allowing the demolition at any time the government sees fit as of next month.. On Thursday, the court rejected two petitions against the demolition by village residents and parents of children at the school who come. The judgment in Qawasmeh et. significant for it provides judicial approval for the recent reinstatement of Israel’s punitive house demolition policy after a “decade-long hiatus”. The judges condone practices of collective punishment, despite the existence of a clear prohibition of such practices under international humanitarian law.

      This article discusses the nature of “house demolitions” as used by the State of Israel in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. In our opinion, and in contrast to the view of Israel’s Supreme Court, such demolition orders constitute a penal sanction. As a penal sanction, we argue that this measure violates the basic principles of criminal liability. The article's lead saysy "House demolition in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a controversial tactic used by the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) for counter-insurgency and other security purposes in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. " - this clearly excludes civil demolitions of houses w/o permits.
