Israeli government plans to discuss a way to implement demolition orders in Arab towns, Arab48 reported.
Likud ministers, Ze’ev Elkin and Yariv Levin presented a comprehensive plan to the government “to implement the organisational and building laws”, which mainly target Arab towns that have tens of thousands of unlicensed homes. These homes are a direct result of the Israeli government’s policies against the Arab community, stated MEMO.
This proposal has come days after Israeli Finance Minister, Moshe Kahlon, announced that the five year plan to upgrade Arab towns has been frozen due to Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu’s insistence on “implementing construction law”, which involves carrying out the demolition orders in the Arab towns.
