Bedouin Bill Passes First Knesset Reading, Despite Protest from Arab MKs
by News Editor
Ynet – Arab Knesset members left the plenum Monday evening in protest of the Praver Bill, which aims to evict illegal Bedouin communities in the Negev. The Arab MKs returned to the plenum only after Welfare Minister Meir Cohen (Yesh Atid) finished presenting the bill, but later on some of them tore the bill.
The bill passed the first reading with a narrow 43-40 vote.
