Ministers to Discuss Bedouin Settlement in the Negev


The Ministerial Committee on Legislation is scheduled to discuss, Monday, legislation to regulate Bedouin settlement in the Negev.

The meeting is being held over the request of a task force of organizations justice and equality for Bedouin not to advance the law. In letters to the prime minister, the justice minister, the attorney general and members of the committee, members of the task force claim that measures called for in the law will result in the forceful eviction of tens of thousands of Bedouin, dispossessing them of their lands and rights.
