Photos: confiscation notices for farmers at Ar-Ras Al-Ahmar

A visitor to Ar-Ras Al-Ahmar will notice the rough situation at the area due to the occupation’s arbitrary policies, at the time Bedouin communities suffer from shortage of resources and services, Israeli illegal colonists enjoy advanced infrastructure on a green land. The Israeli government steals Palestinians’ resources and gives them to colonists, and at the time they prohibit providing services to marginalized Palestinian communities, they build advanced infrastructure for Israeli illegal colonists. Moreover, Israeli illegal colonies are growing very quickly, and the construction of housing units is non-stop, while Palestinians are not allowed to make any new additions to their humble homes.
