Israel continues Negev home demolitions 29Dec10 December 30, 2010

Ma’an News Agency -  29 December 2010

Several homes in the unrecognized Bedouin village of As-Sadir, in Israel’s Negev region, were bulldozed to the ground Wednesday morning, President of the Arab Democratic Party in Israel Talab As-Sane reported.

The official said the homes belonged to the Al-Freijat family, adding in a statement that the continued moves to demolish Bedouin homes in the Negev region was a “crime… wreaking havoc on the land and displacing peoples.”

He accused Israel of targeting its Arab population, saying the country’s “only aim is to steal the lands.”

Earlier in December, 67 members of the extended Abu Eid family were displaced when their six concrete homes were demolished by police in Lod.

The six buildings were among more than 100 in the city under immediate demolition orders, following a fall Knesset decision to destroy an estimated 4,000 illegal housing structures in a plan said to cost millions of shekels.
