Israeli Occupation Bulldozers Demolish Al-Araqib Village for 203 Times

Days of Palestine -

Israeli occupation bulldozers demolished Monday 27 June 2022 the homes and shelters of the Palestinian residents of the village of Al-Araqib in the Negev for the 203rd consecutive time, under the protection of the Israeli forces.

Every month, the Israeli occupation forces storm the village, demolish its homes and terrorize its people, as the villagers rebuild their tents and homes again after each demolition.

The demolition of Al-Araqib this morning is the seventh one in a row since the beginning of 2022. It was demolished 14 times last year 2021.

The village of Al-Araqib is inhabited by 22 families, numbering about 800 people, who live on livestock farming and desert agriculture.

In the seventies of the last century, the residents were able, according to the laws and conditions of the Israeli authorities, to prove their right to own 1250 dunams out of thousands of dunams of land.
