Watch how the settlers take over houses in Silwan

The following short video is maybe the best summary of the story of the settlement in Silwan. Watch how the settlers managed to get hold of properties, house by house, through various ways. The result is a Palestinian neighborhood living in constant tension, with enclaves of settler houses fenced and secured by armed guards.

The JNF (Keren Kayemet Leyisrael) is playing a central role in the displacement of the Palestinian families. On December 18, JNF should submit to court the reply to the Sumarin family request to cancel their eviction. Rabbis for Human Rights, Solidarity and other groups have already called JNF to stop the evictions – please spread and join the call.
