Jerusalem: Israeli court postpones decision on Silwan evictions amid crackdown on protest

Israeli police cracked down on a demonstration against the forced displacement of Palestinian families from the Batn al-Hawa neighbourhood of Silwan, East Jerusalem, early on Wednesday, as the Jerusalem District Court heard an appeal in their eviction cases.

Seven Palestinian families from the neighbourhood were ordered to leave their homes in 2020. Two of them, the Najah and the Kayed al-Rajabi families, submitted their appeal to the Jerusalem court early on Wednesday.

The court heard the appeal and decided to postpone its final verdict.

Outside, residents of Silwan, a small town south of Jerusalem’s Old City, gathered alongside dozens of supporters to denounce the eviction orders.
