Israeli authorities yesterday demolished the homes of the Palestinian Bedouin village of Al-Araqeeb in the southern Negev region, for the 196th time since the year 2000.

The demolition of the tents sheltering Al-Araqeeb’s residents during the winter storm came less than a month after the village was last leveled on 24 November, 2021.

This is the 14th time that the Israeli authorities have demolished the tents in Al-Araqeb since the start of the year. The Al-Araqeb leader was arrested and jailed including having to pay a fine of $10.000.

The village was first leveled in July 2010, and every time the residents of Al-Araqeb rebuild their tents and small homes, occupation forces return to raze them, sometimes several times in a month.

Located in the Negev (Naqab) desert, the village is one of 51 “unrecognized” Arab villages in the area and is constantly targeted for demolition ahead of plans to Judaise the Negev by building homes for new Jewish communities.

Israeli bulldozers, which Bedouins are charged for, demolish everything, from the trees to the water tanks, but Bedouin residents have tried to rebuild it every time.

Bedouin in the Negev must abide by the same laws as Jewish Israeli citizens.

They pay taxes but do not enjoy the same rights and services as Jews in Israel and the state has repeatedly refused to connect the towns to the national grid, water supplies, and other vital amenities.

This is what Israel has been doing over the past 73 years (since 1948) in order to replace native and Palestinian Villages with Zionist settlements in (Egyptian) Gaza, (Palestine) Israel, (Syrian) Golan Heights and the (Jordanian) West Bank?

As the world could have been watching this ever since, but the mainstream media called those victimized people terrorists in order to use military power to raze opponents of the evil Zionist Apartheid Junta.
