Another new concept introduced to the nomenclature of international law violations: "Forced displacement of "camels" of indigenous inhabitants by the occupying power."
: Israel goes to such extremes. Here, Israeli occupation forces are shown seizing a herd of camels belonging to Palestinian Bedouins in the Negev[desert], in preparation for demolishing their village. #noshame #camels #bedouins

P.S. Bedouins are nomadic Arab people, who have historically inhabited the desert regions of a vast stretch of land stretching from North Africa, to today's Saudi Arabia and Yemen, including the historically known "Levant" area, the latter being composed of today's Palestine, Lebanon and Syria. They share a common culture of herding camels and goats. The vast majority of Bedouin adhere to Islam.
The southern half of Palestine is a desert called "Nejev" and is one of the historical inhabitats of these tribes.
Some tribes of Bedouins fought alongside Israel in 1948 Arab-Israeli war. However, from around 70000 before 1948, only 15000 remained in newly established state, the rest were displaced.
About 1,600 Bedouin serve as volunteers in the Israel Defense Forces, many as trackers in the IDF's elite tracking units.
They were offered Israeli Citizenship in 1954 but Successive Israeli administrations tried to demolish Bedouins villages in the Negev and "resettle" them in newly built towns, in a lot of cases, by force.
