The unrecognized Beduin village of al-Arakib, adjacent to the Negev city of Rahat, was demolished once again on Wednesday.

This latest demolition carried out by the Israel Lands Authority, the Jewish National Fund and police forces brought the total number of demolitions close to twenty.

Rabbis for Human Rights reported that JNF and ILA bulldozers dug up the road leading to to the village's cemetery and said that two people were evacuated to an area hospital.
