THE NAQAB, Thursday, March 25, 2021 (WAFA) – For the 185th time in a row, the Israeli authorities today demolished Araqeeb Bedouin village in the Naqab desert in the south of Israel, according to reports.

They said an Israeli force raided the village, which is rebuilt by its residents after each time it has been demolished, and removed all the tent and destroyed the tin shelters placed on the land by the residents to provide with a roof over their heads in this cold winter weather leaving them homeless.

The demolition of the village started in the year 2000, and the last time the demolition took place was on March 11. Today’s demolition is the fourth so far this year.

There are dozens of unrecognized Bedouin villages in Israel, which the government tries to displace and relocate in an attempt to take over their lands.
