JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian family in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem has receieved an order by the Israeli authority’s Law Enforcement Department, on Saturday, to evacuate a building it owns, where five Palestinian families live, by January 23rd.

According to the Civic Coalition for Palestinian Rights in Jerusalem (CCPRJ), the building would be turned over to Israeli settlers who had claimed ownership of the building.

In 2012, the Sabbagh family had filed a law suit at the Israeli District Court in Jerusalem against Israeli settlers' claim that they own the land in question in Sheikh Jarrah.

The Sabbagh family had provided the court with evidence proving ownership of the land and that Israeli setters’ land registration process done in 1972 was illegal and not proper, therefore, their claim of ownership was null and void, the court nevertheless ruled in favor of the settlers on claim that the statute of action in the case has expired.

The family, through its lawyers, appealed the ruling to the High Court on November 15, 2018, which rejected the appeal and upheld the District Court’s decision.

The center added that family’s lawyers re-appealed the High Court’s ruling by asking for a five-judge panel instead of three, and this was rejected as well, which left the eviction of the five families imminent.
