RAMALLAH, West Bank — On Sept. 16, Haaretz published the Israeli plan to deport Palestinian Bedouins from the E1 area of occupied Jerusalem, and move them to a town that would be named Nuwema Hill, north of Jericho.

Around 12,500 Palestinians are going to be affected by this project, which has stirred the ire of the Palestinians due to the grave repercussions they would have to endure, especially in Jerusalem and its surroundings.
