Authorities razed the unrecognized Beduin community of Arakiv in the Negev on Tuesday. Between 20 and 40 homes were demolished by government order.

A large number of security forces gathered early in the morning in the community north of of Beersheba to evict the residents from their homes.

Israeli human rights activists claimed that the police violently ejected the residents without providing them with an opportunity to clear their things from their homes.

Southern District Commander Yohanan Danino rejected accusations of violence by forces involved in the operation, according to Israel Radio.
