Jerusalem, ALRAY – The Israeli occupation authorities are expected to begin work on a long series of plans to expand Jewish neighborhoods in occupied Jerusalem and to build new Jewish settler buildings inside Palestinian neighborhoods.

According to a report published by the Haaretz newspaper on Monday, the talk began of building plans that been frozen for a long time, including plans for the establishment of 2000 housing units in the large Jewish neighborhoods, in addition to 4 other schemes designed for Jewish settlers in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood that includes evacuating Palestinians living in the area.

According to the report, many building plans for settlers in occupied Jerusalem have been frozen during the years of former US President Barack Obama, especially in the last six years, to avoid sharp US reactions.

One of the plans includes evicting a Palestinian family in order to build a three-storey building with three housing units, according to the report.

According to another plan, four Palestinian families will be evicted in order to build a 5-storey building with 10 housing units.

The report claimed that the two buildings are registered with Jewish ownership and that the families they live in cannot be evicted where they have rights granted by the tenant protection law.

It is noteworthy that Israeli occupation authorities have already evacuated Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood to settle Jewish settlers, claiming that the talk about Jewish property dates back to the year of the Nakba of 1948, and despite the cessation of the Israeli authorities to evacuate the Palestinians in recent years, Rightists and businessmen associated with right-wing activists continued to draw up plans to evacuate Palestinians and build for settlers.
