Israeli court decision expected regarding Sheikh Jarrah forced expulsions

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- The Israeli supreme court is expected to make a decision on the forced expulsion of Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood in the eastern part of Jerusalem in the final hearing of the case.

A verdict in the case, which could lead to the neighbourhood’s residents being forcibly displaced to make way for zionist settlers, is expected on Monday morning.

The Israeli court had delayed the ruling last May when the state attorney general made a last-minute request for more time to study the case. The request was made due to massive protests and retaliation by the resistance in Gaza.

The Sheikh Jarrah protests coincided with a decision to ban traditional Ramadan prayers at Jerusalem’s holy sites and marches and riots by far-right settlers groups, in violence that spiralled into an 11-day confrontation with the resistance in the Gaza strip. Protests also swept 1948-occupied cities. ‘Israel’ killed 254 Palestinians in Gaza at the time.
