1,500 Beduins converged on an unrecognized village in the Negev on Tuesday afternoon to mark Land Day, the anniversary of the killing of Israeli Arabs in 1976 during a protest over land confiscations.

Israel Radio reported that the Beduins were shouting anti-Israeli slogans and calling for solidarity with the Palestinian cause. Arab MKs, among them Ahmed Tibi and Taleb A-Sanaa (United Arab List-TAAL) also attended the demonstration.
