JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces and civil administration officers issued demolition and eviction orders to 40 Palestinian families in East Jerusalem late Sunday.

Popular committee spokesman Hani Halabiya told Ma'an that civil administration officers delivered the orders to families in the Jabal al-Baba neighborhood of al-Ezariya.

The families, who mainly live in steel structures and tents, must leave their homes by March 3.

Around 300 Palestinian Bedouins from Jahalin live in 22 homes made of steel, wood and tin boards, as well as tents, Halabiya said.

Israel is trying to displace the community of Jabal al-Baba to expand the nearby settlement of Maale Adumim.

Last week, Israeli forces bulldozed five steel structures belonging to the Bedouin al-Jahalin community in al-Eizariya, leaving 55 people homeless.

In the 1950s, the al-Jahalin community was forcibly displaced from its ancestral home in the Negev desert and resettled east of Jerusalem.

Israeli forces displaced groups of the community in the 1990s to make way for the Maale Adumim settlement.

And don't tell me? Maale Adumin is going to be filled with more ex-Soviet(Ukrainian)Jewish fascists,after the calls by Ukrainian Rabbi's for Ukriane's Jews to leave Ukraine & head to ISRAEL,where their religion IS THEIR PASSPORT IN to free(US subsidized)housing,on occupied Palestinian land.

Ma'ale Adumim...is regarded...as illegal under international law according to the Fourth Geneva Convention (article 49)...- The al-Jahalin community has every right to stay on its land, this is ethnic cleansing. Given that E Jerusalem is non negotiable as the Palestinian capital, those responsible (Kerry et al) should ensure these people are NOT evicted. Bedouins have rights. There is also the issue of the E1 (road). All this should be stopped now, ensuring a contiguous future Palestinian state.
