Early morning eviction of Palestinian family in Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah

0 Comments 05 September 2017

Last night (early morning September 5 2017), a large number of police forces entered the house of the Shamasneh family in Sheikh Jarrah and forcibly evicted the entire family from their homes.


The evacuation included the grandfather of the family, who has lived in the home for 53 years. Jewish settlers immediately took over the house. In the name of an ideology that distorts the values of Judaism, an entire family is now homeless today. Such behavior is immoral, certainly not Jewish, and in serious violation of human rights.

As Jews, one can not remain silent in the face of injustice. We call for a halt to the eviction of the families from Sheikh Jarrah.
