For the 193rd Time, IOF Demolishes Al-Araqib Village
Al-Araqib residents keep reconstructing their village following repeated rounds of demolition by Israeli occupation forces since 2000.
The Israeli occupation forces demolished for the 193rd time the village of al-Araqib in the Naqab region as its residents continue to reconstruct it following repeated demolitions since 2000.
It is worth noting that the previous round of demolitions took place on September 2.
This is the 11th time that the Israeli occupation forces have demolished the tents of al-Araqib residents, since the beginning of 2021. In response, the residents reconstruct their homes every time from scratch using wood and nylon to protect them from the extreme heat in summer and the bitter cold in winter, and to stand up against the plans of uprooting and displacing them from their land.
Al-Araqib Village was also demolished a great number of times in the past years, including in September 2020 and April 2019, after the Supreme Court rejected a petition submitted by the residents of Wadi Yasoul Neighborhood, south of occupied al-Quds, against the Central Court’s decision to demolish neighborhood homes.
