Ten Palestinians were wounded in a brawl with Israeli occupation in occupied East Jerusalem during a solidarity protest with residents of the Sheikh Jarrah area according to an aid organization.

Three Palestinians were hospitalized on Monday, according to the Palestine Red Crescent.


Israeli troops sprayed dirty water into the homes of Palestinians in the area, witnesses stated, while illegal settlers assaulted the residents.

According to eyewitnesses, Israeli occupation forces arrested some of the Palestinians participating in the solidarity protest.


As of the beginning of this year, the Israeli Central Court in East Jerusalem accepted a decision to expel seven Palestinian families from their homes in favor of Israeli settlers.


A total of 37 Palestinian families have lived in 27 homes in the neighborhood since 1956. Illegal Jewish settlers, on the other hand, have been attempting to force them out under a law passed by the Israeli parliament in 1970.



Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced to evacuate their villages and towns in historic Palestine in 1948, fleeing to Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria.

Residents of another group of Palestinians were expelled to the Gaza Strip and the West Bank as Zionist gangs intensified their attacks in order to pave the way for the establishment of the state of Israel.



Palestinians refer to the 1948 expulsions by Zionist gangs as "Nakba," or "Catastrophe," in Arabic.

The dispute between Palestine and Israel began in 1917, when the British government issued the now-famous Balfour Declaration, which called for the creation of "a national home for the Jewish people in Palestine."
