The 7th Negev Conference in Yeruham was held last week on Tuesday Aprl 12th. Put on by the Ministry of Development of the Periphery, the conference was attended by MKs, heads of municipal councils, and leaders in the public, non-profit and business sectors.

On Thursday, March 3rd 2016, the residents of Bedouin villages Umm al Hiran and Atir called on the public to join them in a protest in Beersheva in response to the refusal of the Israeli Supreme Court to reconsider its decision to demolish their villages and evict all of the residents.
