Protesters injured in Jerusalem house slated for demolition

Jerusalem - Ma'an - A number of Palestinian protesters were injured on Monday morning as Israeli forces stormed the home of Majid Abu 'Eisha in the Beit Hanina neighborhood in northern Jerusalem which the Israelis are threatening to demolish. Amongst the injured was Hatim Abdul-Qadir, Prime Minister Fayyad's advisor on Jerusalem affairs.

The injured people have been evacuated to hospital for treatment while the family was forced to evacuate the six-storey house. Israeli forces brought trucks to carry away the furniture and the area was declared closed military zone.

Abdul-Qadir described the Israeli break-in as "brutal" as soldiers attacked protesters and residents of the house. He pointed out that such violence was unprecedented and that police dogs were used. However, he added, violence will not terrify Jerusalem residents, who will defend their houses regardless of the repercussions.

The protest began on Sunday evening as Israeli forces brought bulldozers and heavy machinery to the house.
