Israel demolishes a Bedouin village for 227th time

Ramallah, Jul 1 (Prensa Latina) Israeli authorities on Monday demolished the al-Araqib Bedouin village in the southern Negev desert for the 227th time since 2010 and the fifth time this year.

Bulldozers and heavy equipment demolished the tents of al-Araqib residents on Monday morning, Wafa criticized.

The news agency added that the residents insist on staying and clinging to their land, and each time rebuild their homes of wood and plastic to protect themselves from the intense summer heat and extreme winter cold, and face displacement plans.

The source stated that the village was destroyed 11 times in 2023, 15 times in 2022, and 14 times in 2021.

Palestinian media report that Israeli authorities harass Arab citizens in the Negev through campaigns aimed at confiscating land, destroying crops, and demolishing their homes.

Al-Araqib is home to about 20 families. About 800 people are engaged in animal husbandry and agriculture.
