Araqib village razed for the 203rd time

Monday 27-June-2022

Israeli police forces demolished Al-Araqib village in the Negev for the 203rd consecutive time since 2000 and for the seventh time since the start of the year.

Homes in Al-Araqib inhabited by 22 Palestinian families are built of wood and plastic.

Israeli authorities seek to seize control of the lands and expel its residents with dozens of other villages and Bedouin communities facing the same threat in the Negev area.

The village was first destroyed in 2010 and rebuilt after every demolition since then.
