[ PIC 16/07/2013 – 11:52 AM ]


GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian government in Gaza said that the Israeli plan (Prawer plan) to displace the Negev Bedouins is illegal because it would be carried out by an illegitimate occupation entity, and called for resisting it by all means.

In a press release on Monday, the government stated that it supports the protest steps taken by the Palestinian people in the 1948 occupied lands against this criminal plan.

It said that this plan is part of the racist policies pursued by Israel against the Palestinians since its occupation of Palestine in 1948.

It noted that according to this plan, the Israeli regime would annex 800,000 dunums of land, displace 40,000 Palestinian Bedouins and raze 36 villages in the Negev region.

In a related incident, Palestinian youth groups in Jenin city held a candlelit vigil last night in protest at the Knesset’s approval to Prawer plan.

The participants held banners condemning Israel’s racist policies against the Palestinians in the 1948 occupied lands.

In Nablus city, dozens of Palestinian activists also organized on Monday afternoon a sit-in in protest at the Israeli plan to displace thousands of Negev Bedouins from their villages.

The Palestinian information center (PIC) reporter in the city said that the protestors carried Palestinian flags and historical Palestinian maps to confirm the Palestinian’s right to their land.

The protestors also held banners condemning this plan and describing it as a new Palestinian catastrophe (Nakba).
