The new government committed to advance the recongnition of the unrecognized Bedouin villages/New York Times

14.06.2021

The emerging Israeli coalition government, sworn in yesterday, intends to take significant steps to address the plight of the unrecognized Bedouin communities, in terms of infrastructure, access to basic services and housing solutions. One of Raam’s conditions to join the coalition government, was to recognize the unrecognized villages of Khašim Zannih, Rakhamah and ʿAbdih in the first 45 days of its term; and preparing a plan to deal with other unrecognized villages in the area within its first nine months in power.

Adam Rasgon, a New York Times correspondant covering Israel and the Palestinian territories, wrote about the problem of infrastructure and recognition in Khašim Zannih.
