Adalah calls on Israeli attorney general, Israel Land Authority to postpone eviction of Bedouin Arab residents and demolition of their homes.
Israeli authorities announced this week that they would demolish the entire Bedouin village of Umm al-Hiran in April. In response, Adalah – The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel sent an urgent letter yesterday, 21 March 2018, to Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit and the Israel Land Authority demanding that they postpone the eviction of residents and demolition of their homes.
Israeli police forces entered Umm al-Hiran yesterday in preparation for the April demolitions, posting eviction notices on homes and the village’s mosque. The notices specified that Israeli authorities will carry out demolitions at some point between 15 April and 29 April.
Adalah attorneys Suhad Bishara and Myssana Morany wrote in the urgent letter that the demolition of Umm al-Hiran will leave its 350 residents – including many women and children – homeless. “Despite the state’s obligations and promises to the Supreme Court, these [eviction] notices have been delivered before a just arrangement has been reached with residents and before they have been ensured an adequate and available housing solution. All of this is taking place in the shadow of the racist and discriminatory aims of the Hiran settlement association which will, apparently, be involved in allocating land plots in [the new town of] Hiran,” set to be built on the ruins of Umm al-Hiran.
