Days of Palestine, Jerusalem -Israeli occupation forces started on Monday morning to uproot hundreds of Palestinian trees in Al-Naqab village of Umm al-Hairan.

According to the eyewitnesses, heavy number of Israeli military police escorted the Israeli bulldozers, which are working in the area.

The Israeli occupation authorities decided to damage the Palestinian farms and uproot the trees to oblige the Palestinian residents of the village to leave it in order to replace it with two Israeli settlements.

In November 2013, the Israeli occupation approved a decision to demolish the unrecognised Bedouin village of Umm al-Hiran and passed plans to create two Jewish settlements, Hiran and Kassif, in the area.

Umm al-Hiran is one of dozens of Bedouin villages, which had not been recognised by the Israeli occupation despite being there for decades. It is located in Wadi Attir east of Hurah Aillage.

Arab member of the Israeli Knesset Talab abu-Arar described the Israeli decision as “clear racism” as the Jewish settlement are being built on the lands of the Arab villages, whose residents were displaced.

Abu-Arar compared the Israeli acts to the forced displacement of more than 700,000 Palestinians from their homes in 1948 prior to the creation of the occupation state.

The Higher Guidance Committee of Arab Residents of Negev is scheduled to convene and decide on practical moves in protest against the construction of Jewish settlements in Umm al-Hiran. Palestinian members of the Knesset are also set to join the meeting.
