    Israel demolishes homes in Negev Desert


    by PressTV

    The Israeli regime’s bulldozers have demolished several houses belonging to Palestinian Bedouins in the Negev Desert, locals say.

    Israeli vehicles escorted the bulldozers demolishing homes across the Negev Desert on April 16.

    According to a witness, two houses were knocked down in the village of al-Zaarura.

    In the town of Kuseife, the bulldozers also demolished a number of houses and tore down trees.

    The destructions are part of the Prawer Plan, which would expel around 70,000 people and destroy around 35 Bedouin villages.

    Prawer was formulated in September 2011 when the Israeli regime approved a so-called economic development plan.

    Tel Aviv has so far refused to recognize the rights of Palestinian Bedouins and denies them access to basic services. The Israeli regime has already approved military and settlement projects in the area.
