Kibbutz residents attack Bedouin village in the Negev

May 19, 2013 10:30 P.M. (Updated: May 23, 2013 12:44 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israelis from a Negev kibbutz attacked a Bedouin village on Sunday, setting fire to a tent, a Ma'an reporter said.

Residents from the Kibbutz of Retamim attacked the adjacent Bedouin village of Bir Hadaj and set fire to a tent belonging to Eid Abu Habbak, head of the local village council, Salman Ibin Hamid, told Ma'an.

Abu Habbak filed a complaint with Dimona police department.

"The setters of Retamim are acting like they are in the West Bank," Ibn Hamid added. "These people have the mentality of the occupying settler to attack every Arab."

Israeli police said that Bir Hadaj residents hurled stones at residents of Retamim, a claim which Ibn Hamid denied.

On May 6, an Israeli government committee approved a draft bill setting a framework to implement the evacuation of "unrecognized" villages in the Negev, most of which existed before the state of Israel.
