The Israeli High Court has postponed looking into appeals filed by four Palestinian families against rulings evicting them from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, in occupied Jerusalem, in favor of colonialist settlers.
The Court was scheduled to hold a hearing today, Sunday, but decided to delay the deliberations until Thursday.
The appeals were filed by attorneys representing the indigenous Palestinian families of Eskafi, al-Kurd, al-Ja’ouni, and al-Qassem; the court is set to look into the appeals, Sunday.
The families filed all needed documents and deeds proving ownership of their lands and homes.
It is worth mentioning that the appeals were filed after an Israeli court ordered the eviction of the Palestinian families after Israeli colonialist settlers claimed ownership.
The initial Israeli court ruling, ordering the four Palestinian families out of their homes, was issued in September of the year 2020, and was followed by another ruling also evicting the families of Hammad, Dajani, and Daoudi from their homes in the same neighborhood.
Meanwhile, the occupation forces assaulted the Christians celebrating Easter at Resurrection Church in Al-Quds, kidnapping a number of celebrators.
On the other hand, Hamas movement issued a statement which held the occupation authorities responsible for the safety of the Palestinians in Al-Quds, stressing that the crime of seizing their houses benefits from the stances of the PLO and the normalization deals to target the Palestinian identity.
