Entire Bedouin Community to be Evicted in Jerusalem

The Bedouin community in al-Baba Mountain, in the town of Al-Eizariya, occupied East Jerusalem, stands steadfast in face of Israeli plans which aim to evict them. Not even the children are willing to wave their rights, repeating that al-Baba Mountain is “our land and we will still here.” The Bedouin resident Khaled al-Basha, 45, said that they were shocked with the Israeli decision to evict the community as a whole. They view the decision as unjust and merciless. The Israeli civil administration notified the community 10 days ago, of their impending eviction from their houses in Al-Eizariya, where 57 Palestinian Bedouin families (with a total of 300 members) reside.
