Palestinians, Israelis and Internationals Protest Illegal Settlers in Sheik Jarrah
On Friday afternoon, approximately 80 activists gathered at Sheik Jarrah in East Jerusalem to protest the illegal eviction of Palestinian families, and the occupation of their homes by far right Israeli settlers.
The area has been a flashpoint for weekly protests since two Palestinian families were evicted from the homes they had lived in for 60 years. One family, the al-Kurd’s are now forced to live in the back yard of their own home in a tent, while far right Israeli settlers occupy their home on a rotation system in a bid to grab more and more land from the Palestinians of East Jerusalem.
