Report: Agreement on Rollback of Begin Bedouin Plan

Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) and Yesh Atid reached agreement with other coalition factions, this week, on significant changes to legislation endorsed by the last government regarding regulations for Bedouin lands in the Negev, according to a Friday report by the Ma'ariv daily.

The decision demands that the scope of the legislation, drafted by then-minister Benny Begin, be returned to the original plan of 2011, which was much less generous in terms of the land to be transferred to the Negev Bedouin.
