Official: 3 more homes destroyed in Negev

Aug. 9, 2010 3:44 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 10, 2010 9:25 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities demolished three houses in the western Negev on Monday, local officials said.

The houses in Abda village belonged to the At-Tantawi family, the Abda regional council said.

Ibrahim Al-Waqeely, head of the council, condemned the timing of the demolitions during a heatwave and a few days before the holy month of Ramadan, as families prepare to fast.

Villagers will remain on their land, Al-Waqeely said, despite "continuous provocations" by Israeli forces.

An Israeli police spokesman said he was not familiar with such an incident.

A Bedouin village which Israel considered unrecognized was destroyed in late July.
