Israel orders Bedouins to leave West Bank area

Israel's army has ordered dozens of Palestinian Bedouins to leave their communities in a remote West Bank area while it conducts military exercises there.


The military said the order is temporary, and that the Palestinians are living illegally in closed military zones.


The Bedouins said they have lived there for decades, making a living by herding animals. They said Israeli officials are pressuring them to leave. They added it is distressing for their children and livestock to move, and that many of them have nowhere else to go. (AP)
