Gaza, ALRAY - Israeli government approved on Sunday demolishing of Um al-Hayran village in Negev, inhabited with five thousand Palestinian, to build two Jewish communities instead.
The first community includes 36649 housing units and will be inhabited with 183 thousand people while the second community will include 2500 thousand units with 12 thousand people living in them.
The Israeli government didn’t wait the court decision on the petition presented by Um al-Hayran residents which will be announced after 10 days.
The Israeli government also approved building three Israeli settlements in Negev.
Um al-Hayran is one of dozens of Bedouin towns and villages in the Negev that Israel does not recognize.
The "unrecognized" villages are not connected to water, electricity or sewerage systems.
