Lawyers of Jewish settlement societies on Tuesday sent a memo to the Israeli Magistrates Court demanding the eviction of two Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem.
The memo asked for the evacuation of the families of Daoudi, 7 individuals, and Dajani, 11 individuals, from their homes.
The Jordanian government and UNRWA built the homes of both families in 1956 after they were expelled form their homes in western Jerusalem after its occupation in 1948.
The coalition of non-government organizations in Jerusalem denounced the Israeli practices in occupied Jerusalem, charging that they fell in line with attempts to judaize the holy city.
Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation police banned four Jerusalemite citizens from entering the Old City for two weeks.
Local sources said that the four youth worked in a butcher's shop and were assaulted by policemen a few days ago in their shop.
The sources noted that the Israeli occupation authority banished 150 citizens from the vicinity of the holy Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem since 2007.
