Negev, ALRAY - Israeli occupation bulldozers raided and demolished the Palestinian Bedouin village of al-Araqib in the Negev desert for the 108th  time on Thursday morning.

The social activist Salim al-Araqib said that Israeli vehicles stormed the village, forced the residents to leave their homes and destroyed the village.

Israeli forces confiscated possessions include vehicles belonging to residents of al-Araqib.

sraeli forces began targeting the village with demolitions in 2010, along with filing multiple lawsuits against the residents and imposing more than 2 million shekels ($527,920) worth of fines.

 

The first demolition of al-Araqib took place more than six years ago on June 27, 2010.

 

Al-Araqib is one of 35 Bedouin villages considered “unrecognized” by the Israeli occupation. According to ACRI, more than half of the approximately 160,000 Negev Bedouins reside in unrecognized villages.
