Dispossessing the Bedouin

Go to page 381 for a chapter on the Jahalin entitled “The Greater Jerusalem plan threatens Bedouin communities”

“The planned population transfer is the continuation of a pattern of dispossession
spurred on by the fast growing but, according to international humanitarian laws,
illegal Israeli implantation in Area C. The Bedouin in the OPT lack basic infrastructure and suffer from land confiscations and movement restrictions. According to UN statistics, over 1,094 Palestinians in the OPT were forcibly displaced in
2011 due to 622 home demolitions, and 139 were displaced due to settler violence; over 5,258 people were affected by demolitions, 40% of whom were
Bedouin.”
