This morning (23 December) at 7.00, approximately 40 police officers, together with authorities from the land administration and their bulldozers, began to gather at the Bakama Junction

Previous demolition of the El Araqib village by Israel

 

in preparation for yet another demolition of the Bedouin village of El Araqib in the Negev. At 8.00 a.m. the destruction forces arrived to El Araqib, where they completely demolished the village. The Israeli authorities took vehicles that were in the village. Residents of El Araqib managed to save only some of the resident families’ personal effects; what they didn’t manage to save was buried under the destruction.


 

Yet again the residents of El Araqib are thrown into their fields with no roof over their heads, no belongings and with no solution offered to them.


Immediately following exit of the Israeli forces from the area, El Araqib residents began rebuilding their village.  Activists will join residents of the village this weekend in rehabilitation work.
