Official PA daily erases Israel
Headline: “The occupation suppressed the ‘Jerusalem Marathon’ and attacked the residents of Jerusalem”
“The Jerusalem Marathon set out as part of the ‘Save the Sheikh Jarrah Neighborhood and Save Silwan’ campaign (refers to neighborhoods where eviction notices were given to Arab families illegally living in Jewish owned properties; see note below -Ed.), in a call by the young [Palestinian]Jerusalem people… Young [Palestinian] people from the occupied Palestinian Interior (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel), from Haifa and from Jaffa (i.e., Israeli cities), also participated in it…
The Israeli occupation arrested young Omar Jabarin from Jaffa in the Palestinian Interior that was occupied in 1948.”
The Sheikh Jarrah protests – Israeli courts have ruled that four Palestinian families living in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of Jerusalem are to be evicted because they are living illegally in properties owned by Jews who were expelled in the 1948 Israeli War of Independence. The Palestinian residents were offered to stay if they would pay rent, but they refused and instead appealed to the Israeli Supreme Court. In April 2021 the planned eviction led to clashes between Palestinian residents and Israeli police, which continued into May and served as one of the pretexts for further violent rioting during the Fatah/Hamas Riot and Rocket War 2021. A hearing scheduled by the Supreme Court for May 10, 2021, was postponed following intensified Palestinian riots and unrest both in Sheikh Jarrah and in East Jerusalem in general.
