>> The arrival of three Israeli bulldozers has sparked violent clashes in the occupied West Bank. Palestinian protestors sitting in the shovel and climbing on top of the machines, which have been sent to tear down this Bedouin village. This 45 year old resident says he was born here. Some 180 Bedouin live here in tin and wood shacks, raising sheep and goats.
But its location makes it a target, set between Israeli settlements. Israel has long sought to clear the area, and in May got demolition approval from the Supreme Court. On Tuesday, the Israeli military left a confiscation notice here, but work hasn't started yet. Rights groups have condemned the move as a bid to expand Jewish settlements.
And say it would make it even more difficult for Palestinians to secure a land in the West Bank, a territory they want for a future state. Israel says it has plans to relocate the residents 12 kilometers away to a new site which sits adjacent to a landfill. As scuffles broke out on Tuesday, residents said if they're forced to move, they'll just come back.
