Jewish settlers, protected by Israeli police, continue to terrorize Palestinian residents of the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, in an effort to force them to leave their homes.

Speaking to Safa news agency, Sheikh Jarrah resident Saleh Ziab said that Palestinians are subject to daily Israeli raids carried out by settlers protected by Israeli occupation police, citing the massive raid on the neighborhood on Monday night when 20 people were wounded and others arrested.

According to Ziab, Israeli occupation forces are preventing Palestinians “from sitting or standing in front of their homes and imposes tight restrictions on their exit or entry to the neighborhood.”

However, he said, the occupation allows armed Jewish settlers to wander whenever and wherever they want through the neighborhood.

“Last night, we were surprised with tens of Israeli soldiers suddenly raiding my house after breaking its door and scaring our children.”

He added: “The Israeli troops inspected my house under the pretext of looking for youths who threw stones at them … They threatened me.”

Ziab said that the Israeli police raid Palestinian homes after false complaints are made by the illegal settlers.

Sheikh Jarrah has been under a strict Israeli siege since May 18. Israel prevents activists and journalists from entering the neighborhood.

  1. “These are the sadistic barbaric neo-Nazi pigs that claim to be indigenous to our land.”

    Zionists are indigenous to no particular land on this planet. They are nothing more than a culture comprised of thieves, terrorists, and parasites who arrived in Palestine (from Europe) with the all-out objective of stealing away this land from the indigenous Palestinians, and creating a “Jewish homeland.” There were also three other places considered for creating a “Jewish homeland”: Argentina, Uganda, and the state of Texas. However, Palestine was by far the easiest and most convenient place for the Zionists to create their “Jewish homeland.”
