Jahalin Bedouin

The Jahalin Bedouin lived in the Tel Arad region of the Negev prior to 1948. In the early 1950s, the Jahalin were evicted from their traditional lands by the Israeli army. They re-grouped east of Jerusalem to maintain their pastoral life-style and now are facing re-approved eviction plans by the Israeli authorities
