Bedouins In Israel Protest Plan To Regulate Settlement

Thousands of Bedouin demonstrators and their supporters clashed with the police in various locations across Israel on Saturday, as they protested a government plan to regulate Bedouin settlement in the Negev desert. Altogether, about 15 police officers were injured by stones and at least 28 protesters were arrested, said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld. One officer was stabbed in the leg in Haifa, Rosenfeld added. Activists had called for the protests as part of an international “day of rage” against the plan. Intended to resolve a land dispute between the Bedouins and the authorities, the plan proposes a mechanism to deal with land ownership claims and compensation.
