Al-Araqeeb demolished for 112th time

A large number of the Israeli police forces and demolition units raided the village

Israeli forces demolished the Arab Bedouin village of Al-Araqeeb for the 112th time this morning, local sources reported.

A large number of Israeli police accompanied diggers which demolished Bedouin property in the village.

The area was last demolished in early April. The village chief, Abu Sayyah Al-Araqib, said:

A large number of the Israeli police forces and demolition units raided the village in the afternoon and started to demolish the tents and camps where the villagers are living.

Al-Araqeeb is one of 51 Arab villages in the Negev the Israeli occupation authorities do not recognise and has been targeted for demolition ahead of building homes for new Jewish communities.

Israel has imposed fines on the villagers of Al-Araqib worth millions of dollars, Quds Press said, and charges them for the use of the Israeli bulldozers which carry out the demolition of their homes.
