Resheq: Hundreds of homes in J’lem to be razed because of the peace talks

 Member of Hamas’s political bureau Izzat Al-Resheq stated that the Israeli decision to demolish hundreds of Palestinian homes in occupied Jerusalem is one of the manifestations of the US-backed peace talks between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Israeli occupation state.

In a press release on Saturday, Resheq added that this decision was taken by the Israeli attorney general in conjunction with the American plan to freeze settlement activities for three months in exchange for the resumption of negotiations between the PA and the Israeli occupation.

He warned that the decision is a prelude to raze more than 20,000 Palestinian homes in Jerusalem, which means that tens of thousands of Jerusalemites will be displaced from the holy city.

The Hamas official urged the PA to stop panting for talks whose consequences are unknown and detrimental and to end its security cooperation with the Israeli occupation forces.

For his part, head of the Aqsa Mosque’s manuscript department Najeh Bakirat said that the global Zionist enterprise wanted the Palestinian land without its native people, especially in Jerusalem, where in 1967 it isolated the villages in the eastern part such as Alizariya, Abu Dis and Enata from the holy city, before it even separated them with the segregation wall.

Bakirat added in a statement to the Palestinian information center (PIC) that through this isolation policy, the Israeli occupation implements the internal migration plan in order to force the Jerusalemites to move to the 1948 occupied lands.

"It is internal migration that isolated more than 250,000 Jerusalemites; they could not take the Jerusalemite ID and have no rights inside Jerusalem, so they became like the rest of our people in Gaza and the West Bank," he explained.
