100+ arrested during Al-Naqab's uprising in less than a week
A lawyer overseeing the defense of the people of Al-Naqab reveals that in less than a week, around 100 Palestinians have been detained in the uprising in Al-Naqab.
In less than a week, Israeli forces detained about 100 Palestinians in Al-Naqab, Palestine, according to the lawyer defending Al-Naqab's townspeople.
Al Mayadeen's correspondent in occupied Palestine reported that the lawyer for the defense of the people of Al-Naqab said that there were volunteer lawyers which have joined the Al-Naqab lawyers from all over the country to defend their cause.
Al-Naqab is a resource-rich region in Palestine, which, according to Israeli affairs expert Alif Sabbagh to Al Mayadeen ClubHouse, is prospectively going to be turned into a multitude of military bases for "Israel" and the United States.
Sabbagh explained that Al-Naqab in southern Palestine represents an important strategic location for the US administration and the Israeli occupation authorities, storing water resources estimated at 11 billion cubic meters.
Today, the lawyer announced that files of 34 cases were circulated today in court and that the majority of detainees had their detentions extended.

The assault took place as the Israeli occupation suppressed and attempted to disperse Palestinian protests against the bulldozing of indigenous lands in Al-Naqab through violent means, such as using stun grenades, tear gas, rubber bullets, and water cannons.
Prior to that, activists on Twitter also circulated a video clip documenting scenes of the occupation's assault on Palestinian homes in the village of Al-Atrash in the Al-Naqab.
Anti-bulldozing protests in Al-Naqab suppressed, mass arrests conducted
Protests in Al-Naqab were renewed on the evening of Wednesday after Israeli bulldozers started destroying infrastructure earlier today. Israeli machines bulldozed lands belonging to the Al-Atrash family, near the village of Sa'wah in Al-Naqab.
The destruction took place under the massive protection of Israeli occupation forces. The atmosphere was tense as attacks and prolonged campaigns of arrests swept the region: 46 people were arrested in two days.
Protesters set tires on fire and attempted to block major road intersections on the outskirts of Tel Al-Sabaa, Shaqib Al-Salam, and Rahat, demanding the release of the detainees and the cessation of bulldozing operations targeting Al-Naqab area, east Tel Al-Sabaa.
In response, Israeli police fired sound bombs at the protesting youths in a violent attempt to disperse them by force. Israeli forces were stationed in large numbers in front of the police station in Tel Al-Sabaa.
