Settlers seize Palestinian building in Silwan area, displace Qara’ein family
Extremist Jewish settlers seized Tuesday morning under military protection a Palestinian building in Al-Farouq neighborhood in Al-Makhbar Mount overlooking Silwan district, south of the old city of occupied Jerusalem.
Local sources said that the Israeli police helped the settlers to take over a three-floor building belonging to the family of a deceased Palestinian citizen called Ali Qara’ein in this neighborhood, adding that 20 members of this family are living in this building including children.
Member of the committee for defending homes in Silwan area Fakhri Abu Diyab stated that the family living in this building received an evacuation order from the Israeli occupation authority three months ago at the pretext that these settlers purchased it from the owner Ali Qara’ein. The family categorically denied that.
