NEGEV, (PIC)-- The Israeli authorities continued their demolition streak in the Negev, occupied since 1948, and razed two houses in Laqiya village and the entire village of Araqib for the 36th time.

Eyewitnesses said that Israeli occupation forces escorted the bulldozers in the destruction of the Araqib village, which is always rebuilt by its inhabitants after each time it is leveled.

They said that two homes for a 75-year-old woman and a father of three children were razed in Laqiya out of 11 houses threatened with demolition.

Political official of the Islamic movement in the Negev Sheikh Talab Abu Arar lashed out at the Israeli authorities for deliberately razing Palestinian homes in the Negev while ignoring thousands of unlicensed houses owned by Jews.
