It should be marked that the Bedouin community of Arab Al-Kaa'bnah  is one of 46 communities founded in the Palestinian Jordan Valley (Al-Ghoor) that are threatened of forcible displacement. Over the past ten years, this very community was demolished many times, the latest of which was in 2014.

The community is inhabited by 13 Bedouin families that live primitive life and depend on livestock as the only source of income.

Sateh Al-Bahar is founded to the east of  Mizpe Yeriho colony; more specifically in the area known as Al-Nabi Mousa. Residents of the area have been living there since 25 years ago and are threatened of forcible displacement, taking in consideration that the occupation claims the area closed military zone.
