Israel bulldozes agricultural lands in Sa`wa village in Negev

The Israeli forces on Monday morning swept the lands of the Bedouin village of Sa`wa in the Palestinian Negev and destroyed the citizens' agricultural crops.

Large forces of the Israeli police and bulldozing vehicles raided the lands of the village of Sa'wa and proceeded to sweep its agricultural crops away after they prevented the people from accessing the lands and demolished the sit-in tent erected on the site against the plan of afforestation in the area.

It is not the first time that the police raided the lands of Sa'wa village to implement the scheme to displace the land and confiscate it from its owners.

The so-called "Israel Lands Authority" insists on forcing the plot of land that belongs to Al-Atrash family, while a number of residents said that a settlement was concluded since the 1970s.

In the village of Umm Namila, dozens of people demonstrated to refuse to close the only entrance to the village under the pretext of expanding a main street in the area.
