Hamas warns of mass displacement plan targeting Negev people

Days of Palestine -

The Hamas Movement’s refugee affairs office has warned of a new Israeli displacement plan that will target 36,000 Palestinians in the Negev desert, south of Israel (the 1948 occupied lands).

In a statement on Sunday, Hamas said that the plan aims to transfer thousands of Palestinian Bedouins to temporary housing camps in order to seize their areas.

Hamas noted that such plan would liquidate the issue of 35 unrecognized villages in the Negev and would destroy the lives of 90 impoverished natives living in them.

It hailed the steadfastness and resilience of the Negev for rejecting and resisting the Israeli plan to displace them from their native areas to ghettos or new refugee camps.
