Protesters denounce ‘racist’ planned closure of Beersheba Bedouin market

Dozens of Palestinian and Jewish citizens of Israel protested in front of the municipality of Beersheba on Sunday against the mayor’s decision to close the city’s Bedouin market.

Mayor Ruvik Danilovich decided to close Beersheba’s traditional Bedouin market, which had been in operation for some 120 years, by the end of the month. An appeal has already been filed against the decision to postpone the closure of the market, known colloquially as the “Thursday market.”
