‘Arab Ar-Ramadeen Aj-Janubi community lacks basic human needs, and its members live a basic yet difficult life, the apartheid wall isolated them from their Palestinian surrounding, their only connection to the world is military gate 109.

Noteworthy, Most Residences and Shacks at the community received demolition notices, the occupation tried to evict the area many times, but the community’s steadfastness was stronger than the Israeli Occupation oppression.

After several sessions at the Israeli Supreme court between 2007-2008, the community people managed to secure a resolution that allows to stay at their location after they proved they own the lands before the Israeli Occupation to the West Bank in 1967. Despite that, the Occupation takes every opportunity to impose restrictions on the community, and the demolition operation reached out to many buildings and barns. In addition to depriving residents from their basic civil and humanitarian rights.

‘Arab Ar-Ramadeen Aj-Janubi community descend from Beer As-Saba’a area south Palestine, where they were forcedly displaced in 1950 temporarily with a promise to be returned under the supervision of the United Nations, but Israel did not commit to the agreement. Some of the community people went to Hebron, and the rest immigrated to the north of Qalqilya. A number of them went to North Qalqilya and west Jayyous and were known as ‘Arab Ar-Ramadeen Ash-Shamali, and the other part went south Qalqilya to ‘Arab Ar-Ramadeen Aj-Janoubi and bought number of plots and resided them until this day.
