The Israeli authorities, on Thursday, demolished tents and makeshift homes in the Palestinian Bedouin village of al-Araqeeb in the Negev desert in Israel, for the 177th consecutive time the Palestinian WAFA News Agency reported.

Local sources said that Israeli bulldozers, escorted by Israeli police forces stormed the village and leveled all the tents and makeshift homes, displacing the residents.

Israeli authorities consider the Palestinian Bedouin village to be illegal, refusing to recognize them as Palestinian communities, arguing that they cannot prove their ownership of the lands.

Article 17 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights states;

(1) Everyone has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others.
(2) No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his property.
