NAZARETH, (PIC)– An Israeli court on Sunday re-issued a decision to demolish the Palestinian village of Umm Al-Hayran in the Negev desert area.

Adalah center, a group defending the rights of the Arab minority in the 1948 occupied lands, said an Israeli court issued demolition orders against all the 33 homes of Umm Hayran village, which the Israeli occupation government does not recognize it.

The center noted that the occupation government wants to raze the village in order to establish a Jewish settlement in its place.

Adalah center had filed in 2006 a petition on behalf of Umm Hayran villagers against court demolition orders.

Lawyer for the center Suhad Bishara said the court ignored the history of Umm Hayran and their forced migration to the area at the behest of the military governor in 1956 after they had been forced out of their native village.
