Victory! Capture of East Jerusalem - 1967

Palestinian Land Day - 2021

Land Day commemorates the death of six Palestinians and the injuring of 70 others by Israeli gunfire in Nazareth in 1976 during protests against Israeli land expropriation. Land Day also serves to remind the world of the continued injustice of Israel's historical and ongoing illegal expropriation of Palestinian land.

As we mark Land Day 2021, Al-Haq notes with concern that 15 Jerusalemite families totalling 37 households of around 195 Palestinians, residing in Karm Al-Ja'ouni area in Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood and Batn Al-Hawa neighbourhood in Silwan, are currently at imminent risk of forced eviction. Unlawfully applying Israeli domestic law to occupied territory, Israeli courts have ruled in favour of lawsuits undertaken by settler organisations to evict the 15 Palestinian families.

Toothless statement by EU - as the Clinton-Obama-Biden administration would react: "It's not helpful." How I hate such words when people die in a decades long conflict of promises not kept.
