Middle East: Plans to remove Bedouins from West Bank settlement

Israel wants to build a settlement in the Ma'ale Adumim bubble which would further divide the West Bank. The Jahalin tribe lives in the Ma'ale Adumim bubble. The clan is originally from the Negev Desert, but they were forced out after the 1948 war. Most would like to go back, but Israel has other plans. It's told them they'll be moved to an area near Jericho, along the border with Jordan. Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports.
