Israeli Government To Relocate 2,300 Bedouin In Order To Expand Settlement
Israeli officials have announced a plan to displace twenty Bedouin Arab communities from their homes in the West Bank between Jerusalem and Jericho, and move the residents to a site along the Jerusalem municipal garbage dump.
The forced displacement of the 2,300 residents is scheduled to begin next month. It is part of a larger plan by the Israeli government to forcibly transfer over 27,000 Bedouins from the West Bank into designated reserves, making their traditional profession of shepherding herds of animals much more difficult.
