Palestinians residents of a West Bank hamlet braced Monday for an Israeli demolition of their homes as activists arrived to help them resist in case Israeli troops moved in to evict them.Critics say it's impossible for Palestinians to get building permits and the demolition plan is against the residents' will and meant to make room for the expansion of an Israeli settlement.The village is in the 60 percent of the West Bank known as Area C, which remains under exclusive Israeli control and is home to dozens of Israeli settlements.The Palestinians claim all the West Bank for their future state and say that Area C, home also to an estimated 150,000 to 200,000 Palestinians, is crucial to its economic development.
