The Israeli occupation forces again demolished a Palestinian Bedouin village in the southern Negev region on Monday morning.
The occupation forces demolished the al-Araqib village for the 208th time and for the 7th time since the start of 2022.
The village was first destroyed in 2010 and rebuilt after every demolition since then.
Homes in al-Araqib, inhabited by 22 Palestinian families, are built of wood and plastic.
The demolition of al-Araqib and other villages in the Negev is believed to be a systematic Israeli policy aimed at expelling the native population from the Negev and transferring them to government-zoned areas to pave the way to expand and build settlements for Jewish communities.
Al-Araqib village was first established during the Ottoman era, on land purchased by its residents.
Israeli authorities seek to seize control of the lands and expel its residents, with dozens of other villages and Bedouin communities facing the same threat in the Negev area.
