Palestinians reject offer to end evictions threat

Palestinians threatened with eviction in East Jerusalem have rejected an offer that they rent their homes from a Jewish settlement organisation. In a closely-watched and divisive case, Israel’s top court proposed a compromise to end a long legal fight.

It suggested the four families could stay in their homes in Sheikh Jarrah if they recognised the land was owned by the settler company, but they refused.

The issue has fuelled Israel-Palestinian tensions in recent months. The threat of evictions stoked some of the worst violence between Israeli police and Palestinians in Jerusalem in years, culminating in an 11-day conflict with Gaza after its Hamas rulers fired rockets at the city in what it said was partly a response to Israeli “harassment” in Sheikh Jarrah.
