israeli_soldiers_15_340_220On Tuesday 11th June, Israeli Authorities issued deportation orders to eight families who live on the lands of Beit Hanina village, north of occupied Jerusalem.

Local sources said that Israeli forces handed deportation orders to al-Ka’abna families that include 53 members. Since the early hours of the morning, the residents of the village staged a sit-in in an attempt to stop the implementation of the deportation orders.

Fatah Revolutionary Council member, Dimitri Diliani, said that the al-Ka’abneh families have been suffering for a long time, since the establishment of Atarot settlement industrial zone and the Apartheid wall on the village’s land. 

Diliani added that the suffering of these families is still going and escalating, and that they face the mass deportation. Diliani stressed that the deportation orders come within the framework of a policy of ethnic cleansing practiced by Israel on the Palestinian Occupied Territories, especially in Jerusalem.
