Israeli Colonizers Install Outpost Near Spring In Northern Plains

Israeli Army Confiscates Caravan, Solar Cell, And Water Tank, In Khirbat Ibziq

On Monday, Israeli soldiers invaded the Khirbat Ibziq village, east of Tubas in the northeastern West Bank, and confiscated a caravan owned by the Local Council, a solar power cell, and a water tank.

The head of Khirbat Ibziq Village Council, Abdul-Majid Khdeirat, said the soldiers invaded the village before destroying and confiscating a solar power cell.

He added that the soldiers also confiscated a caravan used by the local council and a water tank that could hold two cubic meters.

The soldiers also destroyed a residential tent, a tent, and an agricultural pool that could hold five cubic meters of water.

Many Bedouin Palestinian families live in tents in Khirbat Ibziq and depend on their livestock and agriculture as their only sources of livelihood.

The village is subject to repeated Israeli invasions and demolitions, especially since the Israeli occupation army conducts live-fire military drills in the areas, which also devastates their farmlands and destroyers their property.

Approximately two weeks ago, an Israeli court denied an appeal against the demolition orders of Palestinian residential tents for Bedouins in the Khirbat Ibziq village, north of Tubas in the northeastern West Bank.

Israel Demolishes Al-Arakib Village For 203rd Time

On Monday morning, Israeli soldiers invaded the al-Arakib Bedouin village in the Negev and demolished it for the 203rd time.

Several Israeli police and military vehicles invaded the village and demolished its dwellings and barns, displacing twenty-two families and their livestock.

Al-Araqib is a Palestinian village located to the north of the city of Beersheba in the Negev desert (southern Palestine). It was established for the first time during Ottoman rule. It is one of the 51 Arab villages in the Negev that the Israeli government does not recognize.

And the occupation authorities have worked since 1951 to expel its residents with the aim of controlling their lands, through extensive house demolitions, to control the vast lands that are equivalent to two-thirds of historic Palestine.

The village was completely demolished by Israeli bulldozers on July 27, 2010; Israeli troops demolished all its homes and displaced hundreds of its residents, under the pretext of building without a permit.

The residents of the village built it again, to be demolished, again and again, the most recent demolition being the 188th one that happened today. The tents that the villagers had set up were demolished, instead of the houses that were demolished in the past times.

The steadfastness of Al-Araqib became a symbol of the battle of wills waged by the Palestinians of the occupied interior, especially in the Negev, in order to survive and preserve land and identity from the policies of Judaization.

About 240,000 Palestinians live in the Negev desert, half of whom live in villages and Bedouin camps, some of which have been in place for hundreds of years.

The Israeli occupation authorities do not recognize their ownership of the lands of these villages and communities, refuse to provide them with basic services such as water and electricity, and try by all means and methods to push the Palestinian Arabs to despair and frustration to uproot and displace them.

Article 17 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights states in section 1: Everyone has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others, and in section 2: No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his property.

Palestinian Forced To Demolish His Home In Occupied Jerusalem

On Sunday, the Israeli occupation authorities forced a Palestinian to demolish his home in the Wadi al-Jouz neighborhood in the occupied capital, Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

The WAFA Palestinian News & Info Agency said the Palestinian, Farid Jaber, was forced to demolish his home in the Wadi al-Jouz neighborhood after exhausting all appeals despite paying hefty fines and fees.

WAFA added that Israel ordered the Palestinian to demolish his home because he didn’t obtain a construction permit.
