Israeli soldiers attacked, on Saturday night, many Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in the occupied capital, Jerusalem, and forced them to leave while allowing fanatic Israeli colonizers to march and call for expelling them.
The Wadi Hilweh Information Center In Silwan (Silwanic) said the soldiers assaulted the Palestinians with batons and dragged many of them in addition to firing gas bombs.
Silwanic added that the army continued the strict siege on Sheikh Jarrah to prevent the Palestinians and solidarity activists from reaching it.
For more than a week now, the Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah have been subject to renewed and escalating Israeli violations and assaults, leading to injury and the abductions of dozens of residents.
It is worth mentioning that dozens of families in the neighborhood face displacement from their homes for Israel’s illegal colonialist activities and are constantly subject to attack and serious violations by the soldiers and the colonizers.
Sheikh Jarrah remains the target of dangerously escalating Israeli policies aiming at demolishing homes and removing at least 75 Palestinian families from their homes in the neighborhood to replace them with illegal colonialist settlers.
“He who wants to film us should do so now as we are bravely defending our homes”
