Jahalin Bedouins in the West Bank, Israel
West Bank, Israel. 22nd February, 2017. Young couples live in temporary housing while permanent homes are built in Mitzpe Yericho. The religious communal Israeli settlement of Mitzpe Yericho in the West Bank, east of Jerusalem, established in 1977, boasts a flourishing village erected from barren desert. Their neighbors, some 6,000 West Bank Jahalin Bedouins face an uncertain future under threat of eviction from land they roam between East Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley, to be resettled north of Jericho. The Jahalin have been debating their case in Israeli courts since 2011.
