Israel gives eviction orders to 8 facilities in the Negev

PNN/ Negev/

Israeli Occupation Authorities on Sunday gave eviction notices to eight Palestinian-owned facilities in Umm al-Hairan village in Negev.

Head of the popular committee in the village Raed Abu Qei’an affirmed that Israel Land Administration crews stormed the village on Sunday escorted by Israeli police forces and delivered the evacuation orders, PIC reported.

The evacuation orders were delivered against four houses and four sheds in the village, he added.

Abu Qei’an pointed out that Israeli authorities are preparing for a new demolition campaign against the village in the near future.

On Nov. 22, Israeli forces stormed the village with the aim of demolishing 15 homes, inhabited by 90 residents mostly children and women.

However, the massive popular presence had succeeded to prevent the demolition process.

Israeli authorities seek to demolish the village and to forcibly displace its residents for the sole purpose of establishing a new Jewish settlement named “Hiran” over its ruins in a flagrant violation of international laws and principles.

Umm al-Hiran is one of 51 unrecognized Bedouin villages in the Negev. The villages are deprived of basic services like housing, water, electricity, education, and health care.

Earlier in November, Amnesty International called on the Israeli authorities to stop violating Umm al-Hiran residents’ right for housing and their basic human needs.
