Following the government’s decision to allow the JNF to plant trees in the Negev desert, local Bedouins have been rioting at unprecedented levels in the area, including throwing rocks at the police station as seen in the video below:

MK Itamar Ben Gvir, who posted the video to his Facebook page blasted the current Bennett-led government saying “There is no control, no security. Naftali (Bennett) wake up, the nation’s security is in danger!”

In another harrowing video, a woman can be seen driving on a major highway and was forced to use the shoulder as piles of fire blocked the artery. The woman can be heard screaming in terror.

Israel365 reported on Wednesday that after violent riots by Bedouins, the Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) resumed planting trees in the Negev on Tuesday under heavy security. At least 18 Bedouin were arrested as the riots included burning cars, blocking trains, and throwing rocks at police. Two policemen were wounded in the clashes.
