As four Palestinian families in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah await a critical ruling from the Israeli High Court regarding their forced eviction from their homes, a Jewish settler opened fire and injured a Palestinian who was taking part in a solidarity event with the afflicted residents, according to local sources.

Palestinian sources told WAFA a settler opened fire at the youth during a solidarity event with the Sheikh Jarrah residents lightly injuring him in the foot.

Israeli police closed off the area following the incident.

The four Palestinian families – Kurd, Skafi, Jaouni, and al-Qassem – have appealed to the High Court against their forced eviction from their homes for the benefit of Israeli settler organizations.

  1. Attempting to depict what’s going on in Sheikh Jarrah as being a “real estate dispute” makes these genocidal Zionist parasites look even more shameful and absurd. They are a tribe comprised of thieves; and, what they’re doing in Sheikh Jarrah is the definition of stealing away homes and properties as they’ve been doing all along for the past 73 years within the occupied Palestinian homeland.
