From al-Araqib to Susiya
"Two villages: one story." The story is Israeli suppression of the eponymous villages, one in the Negev west of the green line, the other in the West Bank near Hebron. This film shows Israel's parallel displacement policies on both sides of the Green Line and people's determination to resist as they seek to remain on their land.
Starting in 2010, Israelis demolished structures in the villages multiple times, ostensibly because they're illegal or unrecognized or built without permits.
The real reason, one of the Bedouins interviewed said, is that "They [Israelis] don't want to see a single Palestinian Arab."
Also the Israel enacted Prawer Plan aims to destroy 35 "unrecognized" villages and displace 70,000 Bedouin citizens of Israel."
