Amnesty calls on Israel to stop Umm al-Hairan demolition


Amnesty International called on the Israeli authorities to cancel its decision to demolish Atir-Umm al-Hiran, condemning the Israeli demolition policy.

The human rights organization said that Atir-Umm al-Hiran demolition came as part of Israel’s forcible displacement policy against Palestinians.

The Israeli plan to forcibly displace hundreds of Palestinian families in Atir-Umm al-Hairan village for the sole purpose of establishing a new Jewish settlement named “Hiran” over its ruins is a flagrant violation of international laws and principles, the organization said.

Atir-Umm al-Hiran is one of the 36 remaining unrecognized Bedouin villages in the Negev. The villages are deprived of basic services like housing, water, electricity, education and health care.

Amnesty called on the Israeli authorities to stop violating Atir-Umm al-Hiran residents’ right for housing and their basic human needs.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Israeli authorities decided to raze the Bedouin village of Umm al-Hairan and displace its residents.

Along the same line, Israeli forces demolished early Wednesday three buildings belonging to a Palestinian family in the city of Lod within the Green Line under the pretext of being built without permit.

Dozens of women and children were left homeless following the demolition.
