Unrecognized Bedouin Villages in the Negev Desert

The villages’ residents live in shacks or in temporary structures with a tin roof. Such living conditions do not provide any insulation and tend to be humid during the winter and extremely hot during the summer. Without electricity, there is no option for air-conditioning and there are occasional cases of hyperthermia.

Due to the lack of recognition of the villages, all the structures are deemed illegal and are at risk for demolition.
