The Israeli army invaded, Wednesday, Jabal al-Baba area, east of the al-Ezariyya town, east of occupied Jerusalem, and handed three demolition orders.Fateh Movement Secretary in Arab al-Jahalin Bedouin village Daoud al-Jahalin said dozens of soldiers, and employees of the Israeli “Civil Administration Office,” run by the army, invaded the Bedouin community, and handed the orders to Ahmad Tarabin, Mahmoud Jahalin and Salem Jahalin.
He added that sixteen person inhabit the targeted homes, and will be rendered homeless should Israel carry out the destruction of their properties.
The Civil Administration informed the families they have until May 18 to file appeals against the demolition orders.
Bedouin villages in the occupied West Bank are subject to constant violations, displacement and assaults, while the military also repeatedly forces them out of the homes and lands, to conduct military training in the Jordan Valley.
Dozens of Bedouin communities in the occupied Negev are also subject to frequent demolition and displacement, as Israeli does not recognize them, although they have been there before Israel was established in the historic land of Palestine in 1948.
One of those villages in the Negev is the al-Araqib village that was destroyed by the army more than eighty-two times. http://www.imemc.org/article/70990
The demolitions are part of the so-called “Negev Development Plan” that aims at destroying Bedouin communities, and relocating them in certain area, so that Israeli can build illegal settlements and shopping centers.
