New Demolition Report by NCF

04.07.2019

New Report from NCF: “Mechanism for Dispossession and Intimidation: Demolition Policy in Arab Bedouin communities in the Negev/Naqab, June 2019”

In 2018, the State of Israel chose to continue to invest large budgets in enforcement, which led to an increase in the number of buildings demolished in Arab Bedouin communities in the Negev/Naqab: 2,326 structures were demolished, when 604 of them were used for dwellings. The constant presence of enforcement and police forces, as well as the tremendous fear of economic and criminal sanctions, also led to a drastic rise in the number of structures demolished by their owners – about 88% of the total number of demolitions.
