Israel approves the establishment of seven settlements in Negev and to deport it’s 800 current inhabitants

[ PIC 16/08/2012 – 10:25 AM ]

NAZARETH, (PIC)– A group of Israeli human rights organizations presented a petition to the Supreme Court against the government’s plan for the establishment of seven Jewish settlements near Arad city in the Negev desert, south of Palestine occupied in 1948.

The petitioners asserted that the establishment of such settlements means the demolition and deportation of five Bedouin hamlets inhabited by about 800 people. The petition, filed on Tuesday, is in response to the Israeli government’s decision that was issued in October last year.

The Israeli plan aims to develop Negev desert and escalate settlements in the region, where 180 acres will be seized for the establishment of this project, media sources said.

Haaretz newspaper quoted the lawyer Yaron Ben Ezra, Director-General of the brigade settlement in the Negev, as saying that this project aims at relocating Bedouins.

For her part, Rawya Rabia, an anti-project activist, said that this project reinforces the Israeli racist policy against Bedouins.
