Israel: Bedouins in the Negev suffer new crop destructions
For the past three weeks, the Israeli government (Israel Land Administration) supported by the Green Patrol and police forces have been destroying cereal crops of Bedouins in the Negev. This is carried out by plowing areas where the wheat has sprouted. On Tuesday, 19th February, 2013, the lands of Wadi El Na’am were ploughed under; on Thursday, 21st February, 2013, north and east of Hura, and between Rakhme and Qasr a-Ser were ploughed. It is estimated that this action refers to approximately 5,000 dunums (a dunum = 1000 sq.m).
