Egypt Denounces Forced Evictions Of Palestinian Families By Israel

Cairo terms evictions as ‘violation of the decisions of international legitimacy and international humanitarian law’

Egypt on Thursday expressed its "strong rejection" of the forced evictions of Palestinian families from their homes in East Jerusalem's Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood by Israeli authorities.
Egypt's Foreign Ministry denounced "Israeli authorities' demolition of a house and a building in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood," terming the Jewish state's "current attempts" to evict Palestinian families as "a violation of the decisions of international legitimacy and international humanitarian law, and a continuation of the policy of forced displacement of Palestinians."
The statement came after Israeli forces went to the home of the al-Salhiya family on Wednesday, assaulted its occupants and demolished the house after a forced evacuation.
The family said they had been living in the home since 1948 after they were expelled from the Ein Karen neighborhood.
Egypt reiterated its "steadfast position on rejecting the settlement policy in the Palestinian territories, whether through building new settlements or expanding existing ones, (as well as) confiscating lands and displacing Palestinians."
Cairo warned that the continuation of Israel's "unilateral measures undermines the chances of reaching a two-state solution, and contributes to disturbing any desired atmosphere for the establishment of a comprehensive and just peace in the region."
The Turkish Foreign Ministry on Wednesday condemned the eviction of the al-Salhiya family and other Palestinian families from their homes as contravening international law and human rights.
"Israel's unilateral practices, which erode the demographic and legal status of Jerusalem, undermine the vision of a two-state solution and the ground for lasting peace," it said.
Israel's forced eviction of Palestinian families in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood sparked an 11-day war last May between the Israeli army and Palestinian factions in Gaza.
