Hundreds of residents of the Negev, among them Jews and Arabs, gathered near the Lehavim-Rahat Junction on Saturday to protest what they described as "the state of Israel and the JNF's effort to take over Beduin lands in the Negev." In a press statement released by the Coalition of Organizations for the Recognition of Unrecognized Beduin Villages, the demonstrators accused the JNF of "making a legal battle redundant by taking over land and planting trees [there]."
