‘Unrecognized’ Bedouin Village - 17 Oct 2014

Images from the ‘unrecognized’ village of Um Al-Hiram in southern Israel's Negev desert, October 16, 2014. For decades Arab Bedouins have eked out a meagre existence in the Negev desert, living without mains water, electricity or sanitation, and largely under the government's radar, but now Israel wants to move some 40,000 Bedouins from more than 30 'unrecognized' villages into government-built townships. Legislation underpinning the proposed mass uprooting was put on hold late last year after violent protests, but a policy of home demolitions continues on a case-by-case basis.
