High Court to state: Broaden plan to defend southern Beduins, report back within 60 days

The High Court of Justice on Monday suggested to the state that it broaden its plans for defending southern Beduins from rocket attacks by placing more bomb shelters near key public locations, such as schools and other public buildings, and that it report back on the issue within 60 days.

It’s suggestion came after what the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) called a “historic first” in which the state announced it was in principle willing to place bomb shelters in Beduin villages in the South, including some that are not legally recognized.

ACRI took credit for the state’s willingness to add bomb shelters and the High Court’s pushing for more specifics and additional bomb-shelters in key spots, following the NGO’s petition filed during the 2014 Gaza war when some Beduin civilians were killed by Hamas rockets in areas with no bomb shelters.
