‘Israel’ demolishes Araqeeb community for the 146th time

Occupied Negev (QNN)- Israeli bulldozers and forces raided on the early morning of Monday the Araqeeb community in occupied Negev and demolished it for the 146th time, displacing its Bedouin residents, according to Arab 48.

Residents of the community said that Israeli police broke into the community and started demolishing houses and tents, leaving them homeless. Members of Yoav unit also chased locals and issued parking tickets against all vehicles in the village.

The Araqeeb Bedouin was first demolished in 2010, and since then, Israeli authorities have fought the village’s Palestinian Bedouin citizens with repeated demolitions, prosecutions, and fines.

The village was last destroyed on 27 June.

Thousands of Palestinian Bedouin citizens live in so-called ‘unrecognised villages’, which Israeli authorities refuse to regularise and grant basic services.
