Interior Affairs Committee Tours Negev - Bedouins Strike


The Committee for Interior Affairs, headed by MK Miri Regev (Likud), this morning (Sunday) left to tour the Negev in the interests of the Bedouin Resettlement Law that is being discussed in the Knesset.

She was confronted by several Bedouin youths, protesting against her, claiming that the bill under consideration was only a way to evict them from their homes. Following the tour, the Bedouin leadership called for a general strike. 

Arab members of the Committee boycotted the tour.
