At least two people were hurt in a confrontation between Israeli police and Bedouins. Tuesday’s violence erupted when police arrived at El Massas, a Bedouin village in the Negev, to serve eviction notices to residents of illegally built homes. Some locals threw stones and Molotov cocktails at the police, who reportedly responded with gunfire. Israel’s Bedouin complain of neglect by the state, saying it does not do enough to recognize their encampments and communities.
