Israel plans to destroy Palestinian Bedouins village in the Negev Desert and replace it with settler commune.
Israeli military’s bulldozers on Tuesday will start destruction of the Umm al-Hiran Village, which the Zionist regime considers as “unrecognized,” among many other Palestinian villages.
The Bedouins will be forced out of their homes to planned townships, while Israeli regime will use the area to set up a new village housing Israelis.
A day before, Adalah, an Israeli activism group, had petitioned a local court to rule out the planned destruction in Umm al-Hiran.
Thousands of Bedouins live in villages such as Umm al-Hiran.
This is while the international community considers the establishment of Israeli settlements is the occupied territories “illegal” under international law.
Over half a million Israeli settlers live in more than 230 illegal settlements build since the regime occupied West Bank.
The Zionist regime has defied calls to sop building more settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.
The United States has never voted in favor of any UN Resolution calling the settlements illegal except for Resolution 465 in 1980, and in that case the Carter administration subsequently announced that the vote had been cast in error due to miscommunication and would have abstained as it had for Resolution 446 and Resolution 452.
