They stormed in and destroyed everything

Israeli troops have made some 200 Bedouin Palestinians homeless after demolishing their village in the Negev region.

According to residents of the Araqib village on Tuesday, Israeli troops raided the village with bulldozers and destroyed every single building.

“They stormed in and destroyed everything, every single building, every single home,” said a local elder.

The village, with about 220 residents, was initially demolished on July 27, 2010, but has since then been rebuilt multiple times by its residents and activists.

“We’re now living in makeshift homes, thanks to the state’s racist and criminal policies,” he added.

A recent report by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) showed that Israeli authorities have demolished or seized over 1,080 Palestinian-owned structures since the start of the last year up until December 28. The demolitions have left some 1,593 Palestinians homeless and affected the lives of another 7,101, according to the report released on December 29, 2016
