Israeli bulldozers demolished the Bedouin village of al-Araqib in the Negev desert in southern Israel for the 141st time on Thursday, the 7th of March. The Israelis are trying to force the Bedouin to re-locate to government-zoned townships. They are determined to stay and rebuild but are constantly under threat of destruction.
· Lord, we pray for the Bedouin people that they may be left in peace to graze their livestock and live peaceably. We pray that this relentless violence by the Israeli authorities against the ‘unrecognised’ Bedouin villages would cease. Lord, in your mercy…hear our prayers.
