A Beduin family in the Negev township of Al-Fura'a has blockaded themselves in their home and threatened to commit suicide Tuesday after inspectors from the Interior Ministry came to their house on Monday and ordered it demolished due to a lack of proper building permits.

MK Taleb A-Sana (Raam-Taal) visited the family in a show of support and blamed the government for creating the tense situation and its "wicked policies based upon destroying homes" in Beduin areas.
