IOF raze Al-Araqeeb Palestinian village for the 98th time

PNN/ Jerusalem/

Israeli bulldozers on Wednesday morning have demolished the al-Araqeeb village in the Negev desert for the 98th time.

Israeli police and municipal bulldozers stormed the village and began the demolition, under the same pretext of no construction permit.

Israeli authorities started to demolish the village, which is one of 45 Palestinian villages in the Negev unrecognized by Israel, in July 2010. Attouri told Quds Press that over the past years, the village had been destroyed 97 times, but “after every demolition, the residents rebuilt their homes to confirm their insistence on not leaving their land.”
