We need your help to stop the evictions of Um Harun.
Evictions in Um Harun

The residents of the Um Harun neighborhood, located in Sheikh Jarrah, are under threat of expulsion from their homes. In the last several years a group of settlers have been making efforts to evict the Palestinian residents of the area and take over their houses. The settlers claim ownership to the land based on documents from the Otmanian period, and as of late the court has acknowledged this claim. On the other hand, the court does not acknowledge the Palestinian residents` ownership of the land from which they were expelled in the 48` war.

Apart from the legal discrimination and the deep human injustice which will be caused, the settlement of East Jerusalem jeopardizes any possibility of a future agreement with the Palestinians. Moreover, the entrance of the settlers into these neighborhoods has a devastating effect on the lives of the Palestinians residents.

We are determined to stand together with the residents of Um Harun at this difficult time and will attempt to stop the eviction. This requires as many activists as possible who will arrive at the neighborhood in case of an attempted eviction.

To get a real-time notice of the attempted eviction please send an email to zvibenninga@gmail.com
include your name and (cellular) number.
