BEERSHEBA (Ma’an) – For the 63rd time, Israeli forces demolished the Bedouin village of al-Araqib in Negev Thursday morning.

A Ma’an reporter in Beersheba said bulldozers escorted by 25 police patrols raided the village at 9 a.m. and demolished all its steel houses.

“Forces of demolition and destruction raided our village in the morning and demolished our houses for the 63rd time. This is a barbarian assault as they left residents homeless during wintry weather,” local resident Aziz Sayyah al-Touri told Ma’an.

He highlighted that the assault came after Israel announced abandoning the Prawer Plan to displace Negev Bedouins.

Israel considers al-Araqib and all Bedouin villages in the Negev illegal, while Bedouins say it is their ancestral land.

There are about 260,000 Bedouin in Israel, mostly living in and around the Negev in the arid south. More than half live in unrecognized villages without utilities and many also live in extreme poverty.

If this were any country other than the Only Democracy in The Middle East the West would be sending troops. We await the angry declaration "we are concerned".

Dear Mister Abbas,wakes up-all foreigners with an Israeli Passport on Palestinian soil have to leave Palestine also by Force,otherwise this genocide on your people the ethnic cleansing,occupation,Land Theft,Murdering,Destruction,imprisonment and more will not stop.All this because they are the Jews, jews who have a free card to disregard human rights,the international laws and get away with it.ALSO the Americans as a Peace broker is a very bad choice(same as any other bias)

There is NO "genocide or ethnic cleansing" going on, except of the Christian populations in many Muslim states. ** ABBAS remembers that last time he tried to "wake up Israelis", and he remembers the massive post-Intifada destruction in Palestinian areas, with hardly any damage to Israeli areas, and he ** KNOWS that with Israel's Security Fence, and anti-Intifada readiness, ** THAT USING FORCE WILL DESTROY PALESTINE, worse than before, and harm Israel less than before !!!

It is hard to believe that anyone could be so ignorant of world events, and still post comments here on Maan, so it seems more likely that lying just makes you feel better. However, for your information (in case you're really that ignorant), The UK (nor any other country) did NOT "sent troops" when 1- SUDAN KILLED 300,000 AND REFUGEED 3,000,000, or when 2- SYRIA KILLED 100,000 AND REFUGEED 1,000,000, and 3- Israel's record is well over 1,000 times less offensive !!! that

To 4) who seems not to have the ability to concoct a nom de plume (or, from the tone of the assault, nom de guerre). While the issues addressed here are too important to get into a sandlot to duke it out with someone using dodgy statistics, "troops" do not necessarily refer to armed troops. Western states often use various groups (sometimes called peacekeeping) or UN Observers. It is sad that Israel apologists must resort to namecalling ("ignorant" "lying").

63 times? I would get the message the first time. How many times do Arabs need to have things repeated before they say, "OK, we get it!"
