The unrecognized Bedouin village of El-Arakib, in Israel's southern Negev desert, is at the center of land dispute between Bedouin residents and Israel's government. Its residents were allowed to reside in the cemetery compound of the village, and as of March 2011, structures outside the compound were demolished by authorities for the 21st time already.
