Israeli authorities demolish four Palestinian homes in Negev
Israeli municipal authorities razed four Palestinian homes on Wednesday in the Negev villages of Fara’a, Tel Arad, Bani Yacaba and Al-Sayyad, local sources reported.
They noted that large numbers of policemen and special security men escorted the municipal teams and blocked entry into the targeted homes before leveling them.
The bulldozers turned those homes into rubble rendering the women and children homeless in the open, the sources said.
Sheikh Ali Abu Qarn, leader of the Islamic movement in the Negev, described the Israeli step in a press release as a “rabid campaign” targets Arab presence in the Negev.
He said that the Israeli attempt to vacate the Negev of its Arab population would fail similar to past attempts, adding that the Islamic movement would support the Arab historic steadfastness.
