Demanding the establishment of special quarantine facilities for Arab Bedouin women in the Naqab


On 21.05.2020, Adalah, NCF, Sidreh, the RCUV and more organizations submitted a petition to the Supreme Court to set up isolation centers in the unrecognized villages of az-Zaʿarūrah and az-Zarnūg.

There is a need of a plan that will provide women from unrecognized villages in the Naqab with suitable isolation solutions in their villages, and which takes into account their unique way of life and needs.

The state is expected to file its response to the petition on 04.06.2020
