Zionist regime demolishes Al-Araqib Bedouin village for 179th time

The Zionist regime’s authorities on Thursday demolished the Palestinian Bedouin village of Al-Araqib in the Naqab desert for the 179th time since the year 2000.

The  Anadolu Agency quoted a member of the Local Committee for the Defence of Al-Araqib, Aziz Al-Turi, stating that this is the fourth time the village, which is inhabited by 22 families, has been demolished since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.


Al-Turi added that Zionist regime’s police had abducted his son Saeed during the demolition process, but later released him with the intervention of lawyers.


Al-Turi stressed that the villagers: “Will rebuild their village, despite the repeated demolitions.”


According to previous reports, the village which is located in the Naqab desert is one of 51 “unrecognised” Arab villages in the area, and is constantly targeted for demolition by Zionist regime’s bulldozers, for which Bedouins are then charged.


Human rights organisations have previously confirmed that Zionist regime’s targets villages and deprives residents of basic services in a bid to displace them.
