"...now authorities are expected to force the Hamdallahs to evacuate a room and their yard to make way for Israelis..." - Ha'aretz
(ISTANBUL) - An article in today’s Haaretz, entitled ”Palestinian family ordered to share East Jerusalem home with Israelis“, begins:
"Right-wing Israelis are expected to move into a room in an East Jerusalem Palestinian family’s home on Monday, after a court sided with their claim.
"The Hamdallah family and American millionaire and settler patron Irving Moskowitz have been fighting an 11-year court battle over the home. Now, authorities are expected to force the Hamdallahs to evacuate a room and their yard to make way for Israelis, who are likely to encumber their neighbors’ day-to-day routine."
The likeliness of the neighborly encumbering increases in the next paragraph:
"The yard leads to the home’s entrance."
Sixteen Palestinians live in the home, but only three reportedly live in the bedroom that the court has ordered vacated.
