The Israeli authorities have ordered the demolition of a number of Palestinian homes and facilities in the Negev desert, south of Palestinian territories occupied since 1948, leaving dozens of families at the risk of homelessness.
Israeli municipal officials escorted by police forces stormed on Tuesday Beer Haddaj village in the Negev desert and put up demolition orders against Palestinian homes and structures.
According to local sources, the municipal officials mapped and photographed the homes as a prelude to demolishing them later.
Several local villagers also suffered injuries when police forces violently suppressed them during the campaign.
The Beer Haddaj villagers have been exposed to unjustified assaults by Israeli police forces several times before.
