Israeli bulldozers demolish house in Negev village

Nov. 13, 2013 6:46 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 14, 2013 3:58 P.M.)
BEERSHEBA (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers early Wednesday demolished a house in a Negev village, a Ma'an reporter said.

Police forces accompanied the bulldozers to al-Sayyed village, where they destroyed the home of Nafeth Hassan Salem al-Sayyed.

Locals told Ma'an that al-Sayyed, 20, planned to use the house as the venue for his upcoming wedding.

The house was build specifically for the wedding ceremony, locals said.

Al-Sayyed village, which was officially recognized by Israel in 2004, is home to some 4,500 Bedouins.

The village still has basic infrastructure problems including limited electricity, public services, and schooling options.

The Israeli government in January approved the Prawer-Begin Bill, calling for the relocation of 30-40,000 Bedouin, the demolition of about 40 villages, and the confiscation of more than 700,000 dunums of land in the Negev.

On Sunday, several Palestinian youth organizations announced worldwide protests against the Prawer Plan set for Nov. 30.
