Israel has announced plans to demolish the entire Bedouin village of Umm al-Hiran in the southern Naqab region in April. If enacted, Israel will force 350 Palestinians into homelessness. Israeli police arrived in the village on 21 March and posted eviction notices on homes and the village’s mosque, stating that demolition will take place between 15 and 29 April. Israel plans to transfer the villagers to the nearby Bedouin town of Hura for two years, until permanent residence is built, the publication Arab48 reported.
