Clashes broke out between police and rioters in the southern Negev on Wednesday, following the continuation of the Jewish National Fund's tree planting project in the area.
Welfare Minister Meir Cohen, who is in charge of the Bedouin Authority, said earlier on Wednesday that the planting in the Negev would be stopped in order to placate the area's Bedouin population.
