Police and security forces returned early Tuesday morning to the Beduin village al-Arakib to raze rebuilt homes for the third time in two weeks, AFP reported.

Thirty police vehicles arrived at the southern Negev village according to the Negev Coexistence Forum and an AFP correspondent."There were about 100 policemen with five or six bulldozers and lorries," Haya Noah, head of the Negev Coexistence Forum told AFP. "They destroyed the village for the third time in two weeks."

More than 1,000 police officers raided the village two weeks ago and destroyed 30 to 40 makeshift structures which housed an estimated 300 Beduin.

Police raided the village again a week later, destroying rebuilding efforts by the residents.
