The Jerusalem District Court has ruled there will be no change in the decision to set free without limitation four Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity activists, detained last week during a demonstration against constructing new housing units for Jews in east Jerusalem. The judge, Moshe Drori, rejected the police appeal on the ruling of the Magistrate’s Court in the matter, which stated there was no reason for arresting the activists. Judge Drori wrote in his decision: “it is a shame that the police delegate, representing the state, is not following the path that the court ruled”. The judge also added: “I didn’t see the need for the District court to explain once again to the police that it has to follow High court rulings that were given 30 years ago”.

The Jerusalem Municipality Planning and Construction Committee approved two construction plans in East Jerusalem, beyond the Green Line. 92 housing units are planned for the Talpiot Mizrach neighborhood and 32 more units are planned for the Pisgat Zeev neighborhood. According city council chair of the Likud, Adv. Elisha Peleg, there is no importance to the fact that the 124 housing units will be constructed beyond the Green Line, “because it is obvious that the only available reserves of land in Jerusalem are beyond the historical Green Line.”
