THE NEGEV, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation force (IOF) leveled the Negev village of Araqib on Thursday for the 20th time after razing it another time just yesterday.

Bulldozers uprooted tents of the enraged Araqib residents pitched near the village cemetery and surrounded them hampering their movement in the cemetery, locals reported.

Injuries had been reported in the razing yesterday.

The supreme monitoring committee for unrecognized villages said it will launch a series of steps to protest what is happening to Araqib, including a march in the city of Beersheba.

The Israeli Land Fund (JFP) has sights set on controlling Araqib and disposing of dozens of other Bedouin communities it has referred to as ”unrecognized villages”.
