Nearly 240,000 Palestinians live in the Negev desert, half in villages and complexes built hundreds of years ago.

The Israeli administration does not recognise their ownership of the land and refuses to supply them with basic services such as water and electricity. Israel is using various means and methods to displace the Palestinians in the area from their land.
