Urgent: Save Umm al-Hiran from immediate demolition
Update: January 2017
A recent report from the organisation Haqel – Jews and Arabs in Defence of Human Rights highlights plans for the eviction of families from Umm al-Hiran on January 15th following the breakdown of negotiations with the Bedouin community in December 2016, when they were given the only option to move immediately to Hura with no agreement on their rights or future.
Haqel are calling on people globally to respond by sending a picture of 100 year-old Musa Hussein, who faces eviction if the plans go ahead, to Israeli Embassy’s around the world. We would also recommend that you copy the letter/email/fax to your MP too, so that they are aware of the Israeli governments plans.

The Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu was reported to be sending his army’s bulldozers in at dawn on Tuesday 22nd November to demolish this peaceful Bedouin village in Israel.
This demolition has been delayed for two years due to international protests at this extreme case of ethnic cleansing, but has now given the go-ahead for the village to be razed, destroying the homes and livelihoods of many families.
