Bedouin Call on Court to Block Destruction of Their Negev Village

'The court could avoid making a clear ruling,' says attorney for Umm al-Hiran villagers. 'The bench is very mixed and anything could happen.'

Residents of the Negev Bedouin village Umm al-Hiran, whom the state intends to evict to make way for a new Jewish community on the land they’ve been living on since 1956, go before the Supreme Court today in a bid to block the state's plans.
