JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police early Thursday prevented Palestinians from protesting peacefully in an East Jerusalem neighborhood, protesters said.

Israeli police officers told Palestinians they would not be allowed to remain in their protest tent in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem, protesters told Ma'an.

A tent was erected in protest against home demolitions regularly carried out by the Jerusalem municipality in Palestinian neighborhoods, and the international community's inaction regarding the issue, they said.

When they arrived at the tent this morning, the protesters said they found the tent destroyed. While reconstructing it, Israeli police came and told them they had 30 minutes to leave the area.

An Israeli police spokesman could not be reached for comment.

As long as Arabs build without getting permits, Israel will continue to act, by demolition, and international community's inaction will continue, and ONLY COMPLETED peace/statehood NEGOTIATION WILL HALT IT.

Such complete and regular ignorance and rubbish from Tibi/Tubas, without fail. Enjoy the comfort you and your ilk get from ignoring the facts and pretending things are not as they are. Others are getting informed and getting repulsed by Israel's actions, and the ground is shifting. BDS is gaining more and more momentum. But don't worry, go back to your denial and everything will be ok.

Palestinians are free to protest or demonstrate as mush and long as they want. But they can and should do it in places under PA or Hamas control - in the West Bank or Gaza. They can sit-in, chant, sign a protest letters to UN, UNESCO, FIFA, UEFA, ICC etc., they can even burn tires, throw stones and erect tents or whatever they want to erect. But they can not do it in Israel without authority's permit, especially in the Israeli capital city of Jerusalem.
