Seventy Jahalin Bedouin families who are living in temporary houses illegally on land that is part of Ma’aleh Adumim, east of Jerusalem, had petitioned the High Court for the right to remain were they were.  As reported by Regavim, the Court has ruled against them, saying that no building will be done there.  While the Bedouin claimed they were in Area B (controlled civilly by the PA), the Court ruled that they were in Israel-controlled Area C.
The State has provided the Bedouin with free plots of land in Abu Dis, where they could build permanent homes; infrastructure and roads are already in place for them.  However, the Palestinian Authority has discouraged that move.
Said a representative of Regavim:  “The Palestinian Authority is more concerned with its strategic hold on the area than with the welfare of the Bedouin.”
