Several villages have been exposed to demolition under the pretext of “illegal building in unrecognized villages.”
“It is a very miserable situation that people are living in the open air,” Ibrahim al Waqeeli, the head of the regional council of the unrecognized villages, said. “What makes the situation more miserable is the weather which is too cold in the desert.”
Some people whom their houses were razed are living now in tents and too many lives in the open air as they haven’t obtained tents or and other help yet.
“Where should we go? Our homes were demolished and we are being dismissed from our land while no one consider this,” a villager said. “Meanwhile, criminal settlers are building unlawful houses on our lands and all say that this is their right and they show high degree of sympathy with them,” he added.
Al waqeeli called for the Arabs, Muslims and the whole civilized world which are abiding to the conventions of human rights and international law “to look at their case and find a solution to their crisis very soon.”
