Clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police on Thursday in the Beduin village of Beer al-Mashash in the Negev resulted in five Palestinians sustaining injuries, including a pregnant woman, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

A Ma’an reporter said clashes erupted as Israeli forces demolished three houses in the village which is “unrecognized” by the Israeli authorities, according to Ma'an.According to the report, Israeli forces responded to the clashes using riot dispersal methods including tear-gas and rubber bullets.

Israeli Arabs and supporters of the Beduin community protested in front of the Knesset on Monday in opposition to the Prawer-Begin plan, which seeks a compromise by legalizing 63 percent of Beduin-claimed land and regulating their settlement in the Negev.
