Palestinian NGOs have raised their concerns over an Israeli plan to evict five Palestinian families from their homes in the Batn Al-Hawa neighborhood of occupied Jerusalem, Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported Friday.

Israeli occupation authorities have been reportedly working to evict Palestinians from this Silwan neighborhood in favor of the Ateret Cohanim settler organization.

According to Al-Quds Al-Arabi, the Palestinian NGOs noted that what is happening in Batn Al-Hawa is similar to what is happening in Sheikh Jarrah and other neighborhoods across East Jerusalem.

The NGOs stated that the Israeli authorities use a law preventing Palestinians from returning to the homes they left in 1948, while giving Jewish groups the right to evict Palestinians.
