Israel demolishing more Palestinian homes in Negev Desert

The Israeli regime is going ahead with its Prawer Plan, which seeks to demolish Palestinian houses and relocate tens of thousands of Palestinian Bedouins, Press TV reports.

To implement the plan, Israel has reportedly demolished Palestinian houses in the Negev Desert with Palestinians saying that the plan aims to cleanse their population from their land.

Approved in 2011 in the Israeli Knesset, the Prawer Plan aims to relocate 30,000-40,000 Bedouins under cover of economic development.

Palestinian activist Osama Abu Baker told Press TV that “these demolitions are part of the Israeli Prawer Plan,” while Mohammad Asayid, a Bedouin, desscribed the Prawler Plan as a “form of ethnic cleansing.”

On Wednesday, bulldozers escorted by a large group of Israeli forces knocked down homes in al-Zaarura village in the Negev Desert.

The troops approached the village, one of several Bedouin villages in the Negev Desert, from the west and demolished homes.

According to a letter signed by more than 50 public figures in Britain in late 2013, what Tel Aviv intends to do is “forced displacement of Palestinians from their homes and land, and systematic discrimination and separation.”

Tel Aviv has so far refused to recognize the rights of Palestinian Bedouins and denies them access to basic services. The Israeli regime has already approved military and settlement projects in the area.

Human rights groups say the measure will lead to the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians living there.
