Ethnic Cleansing: Israel demolish Palestinian village in Negev for 42nd time

[ PIC 13/09/2012 – 10:03 AM ]

NAZARETH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) demolished on Wednesday morning the village of Araqib in the Negev for the 42nd consecutive time at the pretext it is not recognized by Israel.

Israeli bulldozers escorted by policemen and troops knocked down without mercy all structures, homes and tin shacks that were built on the ruins of their homes that had been demolished for the first time in August 2010.

All the Araqib families with their children were rendered homeless.

Araqib village is one of 45 Arab villages in the Negev which the Israeli regime does not recognize. Its population is about 700 impoverished people and the livestock farming is their only source of living.
