INFOGRAM ON HOME DEMOLITIONS DURING 2022

08.08.2023

In the last decade, more than 18,500 buildings were destroyed in Bedouin – settlements in the Negev-Naqab.

In 2022, 2,850 structures were destroyed. The demolitions in 2022 included hundreds of demolitions in townships and thousands of self-demolitions. These numbers reflect power dynamics between authorities and Bedouin citizens. Increasingly, Bedouin families are forced to demolish their own homes after receiving a demolition order to avoid paying high fines to the government for the demolition.
