On Monday morning, a group of Israeli colonizers, accompanied by police officers, occupied a Palestinian land in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, in occupied East Jerusalem.
The colonizers invaded the area, accompanied by representatives of the so-called Absentee Property Custodian Department, invaded the area, and illegally confiscated a private Palestinian land, owned by Abdul-Razeq Sheikh, the Maan News Agency has reported.
The land is the front yard of the Palestinian home, and is approximately 50 square/meters.
The soldiers started bulldozing the land, and uprooting its trees and saplings, without a court order.
|The ‘Israeli Absentee Property Law 1950’ (‘Absentee Property Law’) is the main law in a series of laws that regulate the treatment of property belonging to Palestinians who left, were forced to flee, or were deported during the 1948 War.
These Palestinian refugees left behind a great deal of property and the Absentee Property Law has served as the legal basis for transferring such property into the possession of the State of Israel.| Read More – The Norwegian Refugee Council
