Israeli government announces plan to forcibly remove 2300 Bedouins
In their urgency to “resolve” a perceived problem with the Bedouin population, the Israeli government has proposed that 2,300 Bedouins be relocated from hill surrounding the Palestinian town of As Sawahra, where they live on the edge of a garbage dump at al Abidal.
Further plans are currently being pressed forward through the Israeli parliament for 90,000 further Bedouins from their ancestral land in the Negev desert to more government planned townships. At the moment it is reported that up to 250 Bedouins live on the edge of As Sawahira near the al Abidal dump where the smell of rubbish is already quite potent. They were moved by the Israeli Government 15 years ago where the dump has grown since then while the land they vacated is now home to the illegal Ma’ale Adumim settlement.
