Nearly 200 Palestinians gathered outside the Jerusalem District Court today to protest the planned forcible expulsion of hundreds of Palestinians from their homes in the occupied East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Silwan, Anadolu Agency reported.
The hearing was against an Israeli court verdict, which ruled in 2020 to forcibly displace seven Palestinian families in Silwan in favour of Jewish settlers. The court said it would issue a decision on the pending appeal "soon".
It is Israeli policy," he continued, adding that there is a "double standard" in Israeli law.
At least one Palestinian, Qutaiba Odeh, was arrested at the protest.
