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”.

A Palestinian family was evicted of its home in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabl Mukabar by court order. Its home was settled by Jews with associations and relationships with the Elad Society. This is the first time that Jews settle in Jabl Mukabar. Assaf Sharon, of the Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity organization, stated that police forces that had arrived in the neighborhood assaulted two people. (Hebrew, English)
