Updated: “Israeli Colonists Injure Palestinians, Including Four Children, In Sheikh Jarrah”

Illegal Israeli colonialist settlers injured, on Monday evening, several Palestinians, including four children, in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, in occupied Jerusalem, while Israeli soldiers also assaulted the residents and abducted many.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers, squatting in the illegally confiscated al-Ghawi building, attacked many Palestinians with chairs and rocks.

They added that the soldiers also tried to punch and kick several Palestinians, leading to scuffles, before the soldiers invaded the neighborhood, broke into homes, and fired concussion grenades.

During the assault, the colonists pepper-sprayed the faces of four Palestinian girls (12 to 14 years of age) under the protection of the Israeli police in the neighborhood

In related news, the soldiers invaded Silwan town, in Jerusalem, leading to protests in the Be’er Ayyoub neighborhood, and fired many concussion grenades before abducting a Palestinian child.

The attack is part of the constant Israeli violations in Sheikh Jarrah, especially amidst the Israeli plans to displace and remove the indigenous Palestinians to replace them with illegal colonialist settlers.

28 Palestinian families are living in Sheikh Jarrah; they moved there when they were forced out of their homes and lands during the Nakba of 1948, when Israel was established in the historic land of Palestine, after ethnically cleansing hundreds of towns and villages.

In the year 2020, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) stated that Israeli colonialist groups filed lawsuits with Israeli courts to displace more than 218 Palestinian families (970 persons, including at least 424 children), in occupied East Jerusalem, including 75 families in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

The Israeli Supreme Court recently postponed the deliberation of appeals filed by four families in Sheikh Jarrah, while three other families are awaiting a hearing which is said to be conducted in August of this year.

Masafer Yatta, a collection of almost 19 hamlets that rely heavily on animal husbandry as the main source of livelihood. It is located in Area C of the West Bank, under full Israeli administrative and military control.

Home demolitions, confiscation of the most basic infrastructure and military training exercises are part of everyday reality in the area, forcing many to live in natural caves, as they vow to stay in Masafer Yatta no matter what the obstacles.

In many Palestinian communities located in Area C of the West Bank under full Israeli military control, Israeli-designated “firing zones” or “closed military zones” are forbidden for Palestinians to live on without permission from the Israeli occupation authorities, which is rarely granted.

There are nearly 700,000 Israeli settlers living in 256 illegal settlements and outposts scattered across the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Israeli settlements are illegal under international law.
