OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, Haaretz newspaper said on Tuesday that the Israeli high court issued a decision allowing the right-wing institutions active in settlement construction to initiate procedures for the immediate displacement of tens of Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

The court declined a written objection filed by Palestinian citizens against an earlier decision regarding their ownership of a large piece of land in the western part of this neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem.

The court claimed that representatives of Israeli settlers and the administration of absentee property as well as other institutions have evidence that this piece of land is owned by settlers.

A source working for an Israeli settlement society said three Palestinian families will leave their homes in this neighborhood and dozens of Israeli families will be brought to live in them.

In separate incidents, mayor of Deir Estia village Nadhmi Salman said that more than 10 Israeli excavators started on Monday to expand Revava settlement near the village, west of Salfit city, in order to establish new housing units.

Meanwhile, dozens of Israeli settlers at dawn Tuesday stormed Joseph's tomb, east of Nablus city, and performed their rituals until the morning hours.

Local sources said that the settlers deliberately made loud noises and caused damage in a nearby school for girls, while Israeli soldiers were deployed in alleys and on rooftops.

Other Palestinian eyewitness reported that an Israeli settler driving his car on the main road connecting Nablus with Hawara area and Beita towns deliberately ran over a Palestinian young man before an Israeli military patrol came to the scene and took him to an unknown destination.
