Jerusalem – Ma’an – Israeli police raided and dismantled on Wednesday a sidewalk tent set up by a Palestinian family evicted by Israeli orders from their East Jerusalem home in August.

According to local sources, police and employees of the Israeli-controlled Jerusalem Municipality confiscated the contents of the tent, including sheets, kitchenware, and a television set.

Only four members of the Al-Ghawi family were in the tent when Israeli forces arrived to take it down by force.

The Al-Ghawis were one of two families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem forcibly evicted, whose homes were then handed over to Israeli settlers. More than 50 members of the two extended families were thrown into the street.

The Al-Ghawi and Al-Hanoun families have been sleeping in the street near their former homes ever since the incident while they petition to be returned to their homes.

The international community condemned the evictions, which took place a few blocks from the consulates of the UK, US, and other world powers.

Please pass on my concern to the Al-Ghawi and Al-Hanoun families whom I met earlier this year. I was distressed to hear of their eviction from their homes and even more so that they are not even allowed to stay in their tents. I have been telling all my friends and family about Israel's injustices.
