Illegally-built structures on the unrecognized Beduin village of Kafr Al-Arakib were demolished on Monday morning by clerks from the Israel Lands Administration guarded by Israel Police, the fifth time in the last two months that such demolitions have been carried out.

Negev police said there were no arrests made and no one was injured in the demolitions.

The Israel Lands Administration and Israeli courts have ruled the structures at the village illegal, while residents contend it is their ancestral land that they have lived on since before the founding of the state.

On Monday evening, dozens of protestors held a solidarity rally in support of the village's residents in downtown Tel Aviv.
