Occupied Jerusalem - SANA
Palestinian Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh condemned the escalation of the Israeli occupation’s crimes against the Palestinians in Jerusalem, especially in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, stressing that what is happening is aimed at Judaizing the Holy City and obliterating the Palestinian identity.
According to Wafa Agency, Shtayyeh called on the Palestinian people to continue the struggle and defend their land and sanctities, praising the steadfastness of the people of Sheikh Jarrah, who are subjected to a fierce campaign of occupation aimed at forcible displacement from their homes, and said that what is happening is a continuation of the systematic displacement plan followed by the occupation with the aim of seizing Palestinian land and Judaizing it.
Shtayyeh called on the international community to take urgent and effective action to implement international legitimacy decisions, provide international protection for the Palestinian people, and curb settlement and expansionist occupation schemes. He welcomed the statement issued by the United Nations today in which it considered the Israeli occupation entity’s procedure to evacuate Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah from their homes in order to replace settlers in violation of international law. .
