Today, Saturday, the Israeli occupation forces suppressed a demonstration in which Palestinians, foreign activists, and Israelis participated in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem, and beat some of them.
The demonstrators called for an end to the siege on the neighborhood, and chanted slogans calling for the cancellation of the decisions to deport Palestinian families from it in favor of Israeli settlers, and they expressed solidarity with the Silwan neighborhood, which is facing the same fate.
Eyewitnesses said that dozens of Palestinians, foreign and Israeli solidarity activists have gathered in front of the closed neighborhood since May 16, and chanted slogans in solidarity with its residents and raised Palestinian flags.
Since April 13, the situation in the Palestinian territories has exploded as a result of the violations committed by the Israeli police and settlers in Jerusalem, especially the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its environs and the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, as Israel seeks to evacuate 12 Palestinian homes and hand them over to settlers.
In response to widespread violations of Al-Aqsa Mosque and attacks on worshipers inside it, on 28 Ramadan, corresponding to May 13, Palestinian factions in Gaza fired dozens of rockets at Israeli settlements near the Strip.
On the same day, the occupation launched a brutal aggression on Gaza by land, air and sea that lasted 11 days, and resulted in the death of 255 Palestinians, including 66 children, 39 women and 17 elderly, before ending with a ceasefire.
