Al-Quds center warns of Israeli plan to banish 20,000 Jerusalemites

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Al-Quds center for legal rights warned of an Israeli plan to expel more than 20,000 Palestinian citizens from their homes in the occupied city of Jerusalem at the pretext of unlicensed residence, which would speed up the process of Judaizing the holy city.

The center said that the family of Mari Radayda was informed by the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) that they will be deported from their neighborhood of Ashqariya in Beit Hanina.

It pointed out that the IOA is trying to punish the family of Mari who was killed when he crashed a bulldozer he was driving in an Israeli police car and a public bus.

In the same context, the research and documentation department of Al-Quds center accused the IOA of pursuing the policy of ethnic cleansing and transferring illegally large groups of Palestinian populations from their permanent residence places at the pretext that they are not recognized by Israel and do not have blue ID cards.

The department added that the IOA, at the same time, follows the policy of replacement, where it brings Israelis to live in Jerusalem and the occupied Palestinian lands in place of the indigenous Palestinian people.

For its part, Al-Maqdsi foundation for society development said that the IOA notified the Palestinian citizens living in Mahfouz apartment building composed of 32 apartments in Beit Hanina that their building will be demolished, noting that this building is the home of at least 160 people, mostly children.

In another incident, the Jerusalem Post newspaper reported Sunday that the Israeli municipal council in the holy city started to prepare for the demolition of dozens of Palestinian homes in Silwan neighborhood.

The newspaper said that head of the council Nir Barkat gave orders to his staff to make preparations in this regard in coordination with the Israeli police.

For their part, the Palestinians of the 1948 occupied lands strongly denounced Israeli deputy foreign minister Danny Ayalon for calling for deporting them to the lands under the control of the Palestinian Authority (PA).

Ayalon said in a press statement to Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper that the Arabs in Israel would not lose anything if they joined the future Palestinian state.

The Arab lawmakers in the Knesset deplored such remarks and stressed that the 1948 Palestinians are the real owners of the land and the Israelis who were brought from around the world are the ones who must leave Palestine.
