NEGEV, (PIC)– Five Palestinian Bedouin students were injured when Israeli policemen and border police stormed their school in Tarabin village, Negev, on Tuesday, local sources reported.

They said that the storming followed an unsuccessful earlier attempt by policemen to arrest a number of students who took part in protest demonstrations against the demolition of homes in Negev.

During those confrontations policemen fired teargas canisters and rubber bullets at the protestors who threw stones at the security forces.

The Israeli authorities have systematically targeted Bedouin villages in the Negev in an attempt to Judaize the region, demolishing in the process entire villages and causing constant tension.
