Lawyers for Palestinian Bedouins say they have seen an unofficial Israeli plan for a new town, which will house thousands forced to leave their land in the West Bank.
 
But Bedouins say the move is a first step towards clearing an area of Palestinian land controlled by Israel known as the Ma'ale Adumim bubble. 

The Jahalin tribe that lives in the Ma'ale Adumim bubble say Israel has told them they’ll be moved to an area near Jericho, along the border with Jordan.
