Eight women in their fifties were killed and 28 others were wounded on Tuesday afternoon in a massive traffic accident that involved a truck, a bus and a private vehicle adjacent to Lehavim Junction in the Negev in Israel's south.

The bus that was in the crash was filled with female Bedouin Arab passengers from the Negev who were returning from prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque on Jerusalem's Temple Mount.

It is suspected that as the bus was travelling on Highway 40 adjacent to Lehavim Junction, a truck pulling a tractor in the opposite direction broke into its lane. The tractor is suspected to have extended from the truck wider than is permitted, and therefore it directly struck the bus.

Numerous Magen David Adom (MDA) emergency aid crews arrived on the site to provide treatment; the crash has been declared a mass casualty incident. The crews evacuated to the hospital 28 people who were in moderate to light condition.

In parallel, the IDF dispatched its Unit 669 to the site of the accident to help evacuate the numerous wounded. A unit from the IDF Homefront Command is likewise on its way to the location.

Elad Levi, a volunteer with United Hatzalah emergency services, said "when I arrived at the location I came across a very difficult scene - a bus struck by a truck that was pulling a tractor, and as a result some of the bus passengers were killed on the site due to the nature of the severe damage."

Oh, First of all, the picture is fake.

Second, why on earth are you asking provocative, stupid questions, when you know the answer already?

Can't you read a friggin map to know where the area is?

Whilst unfortunate, accidents happen. What's this got to do with the Israel/Palestine conflict?

Really?

Of course this is a news article, not source documentation, but still.

"The Israeli government has Okayed the demolition of a Palestinian Bedouin village in the desert Negev region to make room for a Jewish settlement, despite protests by residents and NGO groups."

Others remained in unrecognized villages built without planning
In your dreams, perhaps.

"Since its inception and partnership with the Jewish National Fund (JNF) in 1999, OR has established five new communities in the Negev (Sansana, Givor Bar, Be’er Milka, Merchav-Am and Charuv) and has assisted in the expansion of existing population centers. Over the next five years, Flamer predicts that OR will relocate 26,750 families to the Negev.

OR’s role in settling these families in the Negev, Flamer explains, is three-pronged: “We work with housing, education, and employment to ensure a greater quality of life for our incoming families.” Flamer believes that through economic, educational, and cultural development, the Negev will cease to be seen as a periphery of Israel. His long-term goal is to settle 500,000 people in the Negev. Currently, there are 13,000 families on OR’s waiting list."

Bedouin protest deadly police shootings in Israel

file photo
Police had shot and killed a man during a police raid on his house and despite the police and Bedouins agreeing to not have police at the funeral, upon their arrival clashes resulted in the death of another youth.


Protests took place in Israel on Tuesday after a Bedouin man from Israel was shot dead and another was killed when clashes arose at his funeral. The deaths of the men have exposed a long history of represennion, demolition and attacks on the Bedouins living in Southern Israel.

Sami Ja’ar, a Bedouin resident of Rahat, was shot to death during a police raid. Local Bedouin officials and Israeli police agreed that officers would not be present during his funeral on Sunday. When a police car showed up, mourners began throwing stones and clashes began, where a second man died.

Roughly 1,000 people marched between the homes of the two men who were killed in , after which they gathered at mourning tents set up by their families.

Thousands of Bedouins have inhabited the area for hundreds of years, but with creation of the state of Israel, the villages that they have lived in have become "unrecognised".

What's wrong with that? Those are sitting there illegally, while the town in built is legal.
