Palestinians Drive Jewish Settlers Out Of Sheikh Jarrah

Called on to gather in high tension neighborhood, Palestinian crowd compels Jewish settlers to leave area.

Hundreds of Jewish settlers who approached the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem withdrew from the area early Monday upon encountering a large group of Palestinian youths, according to an Anadolu Agency reporter.
This came after the loudspeakers of a mosque in the nearby Isaiah neighborhood called on Palestinians to march to Sheikh Jarrah, where tensions have been rising due to conflicts between the Israeli police and Palestinian residents who were forcibly evicted from their homes.
Following the call from the mosque, Palestinians from several areas of Jerusalem flooded the neighborhood on foot or by car.
The crowd of Palestinians compelled the Jewish settlers, who had arrived in the area early in the day, to walk away.
Recent developments in East Jerusalem
Palestinians in Jerusalem in recent days have protested in solidarity with the residents of the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood amid attacks by Israeli police.
The crisis stems from a ruling by the Israeli Central Court in East Jerusalem, which approved a decision to evict seven Palestinian families from their homes in the neighborhood in favor of Israeli settlers at the beginning of this year.
Israeli police attempted to disperse worshippers inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound Friday evening using stun grenades and tear gas. Hundreds of Palestinians were injured in the attacks, which have been condemned worldwide.
Al-Aqsa Mosque is the world's third-holiest site for Muslims. Jews call the area the "Temple Mount," claiming it was the site of two Jewish temples in ancient times.
Israel occupied East Jerusalem, where Al-Aqsa is located, during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. It annexed the entire city in 1980 in a move never recognized by the international community.
