Palestinians block an Israeli attempt to occupy a house near east Jerusalem

Jerusalem - Ma'an - Palestinians successfully blocked an attempt by Israeli settlers to take over a house in the Palestinian town of Beit Safafa, in East Jerusalem on Saturday.

The house is owned by Baha Ad-Din Darwish, and borders the illegal Israeli settlement of Gilo. It is built on a 12 dunam (12,000 square meter) plot of land owned by Darwish.

A group of Palestinian residents headed by Hatem Abed-Al Qader an advisor on Jerusalem affairs for the caretaker government of Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, broke into the house and cleared it of the furniture placed there by settlers. Abed Al-Qader said the house will be closed, in preparation for a Palestinian family to live in it.
