Israeli Supreme Court orders eviction of a house and a store in Jerusalem’s old city

Today (Monday), the Supreme Court upheld a ruling from November, and ordered the eviction of a house belonging to Ghazi Zaloum and a store owned by Isma’il Wazouz, both in the old city of Jerusalem, claiming that these are ‘pre-1948 Jewish properties.’ The owners’ lawyer, Mr. Muhammad Dahleh, added that the threat of eviction in both cases is imminent and also that both owners were forced by the court to pay for the cost of the appeal and the settlers’ legal fees.
