Palestinians foil attempt to take over two buildings in Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah

 

JERUSALEM, June 25, 2018 (WAFA) – Palestinians from Um Haroun area in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, in occupied Jerusalem, Monday foiled an attempt by Israeli forces to take over two buildings.

WAFA correspondent reported on locals saying that Israeli police withdrew from the area after being asked to present the court’s eviction order, which they failed to do.

Israeli settlement groups with the support of the official institutions of the Israeli occupation, were able and through ‘crooked ways’ and improper papers to take over more than one property in the area, which is considered the closest to the western part of occupied Jerusalem, and is still attempting to take over what’s left of homes in the area, claiming pre-1948 ownership of the land.
