The occupation assaults on the march to demand an end to the siege of Sheikh Jarrah

Jerusalem - “Jerusalem” dot com - Today, Saturday, the Israeli occupation forces attacked the participants in a march organized in front of the western entrance to the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied Jerusalem, to demand an end to settler provocations and the lifting of the continuous siege on the neighborhood for 14 days.

Peace activists participated in the march alongside the Palestinian people in occupied Jerusalem, and chanted slogans condemning the siege of the neighborhood and the practices of the occupation forces and settlers against the people there.

The occupation forces have intensified their deployment at the entrances to the neighborhood, preventing citizens from reaching the besieged homes, and their owners are threatened with forced displacement for the benefit of settlers.

The young woman, Mona Al-Kurd, said that the neighborhood had turned into a closed military barracks 14 days ago, noting that the occupation forces deliberately provoked the people and obstructed their movement, while allowing settlers to move freely.

The suffering of the residents of the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem began in 1967, when the buildings in which they lived were placed under the tutelage of the "Israeli custodian of public property."

According to a survey conducted by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in 2020, eviction lawsuits have been filed against at least 218 Palestinian families in East Jerusalem, including families in Sheikh Jarrah, most of which were initiated by "settlement associations," which show 970 people, including 424 children, are at risk of displacement.

The Israeli Supreme Court recently postponed a hearing on the eviction of four Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem for the benefit of settlers, while three other families in the same neighborhood await a similar decision next August.
