Settlers move furniture out of Jerusalem home

Oct. 10, 2010 10:40 A.M. (Updated: Oct. 11, 2010 4:16 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Israeli settlers ransacked the home of a Palestinian family in occupied East Jerusalem's Old City early Sunday tossing furniture into the street.

Homeowner Mazin Qirrish said Israeli police provided protection to the settlers as his family and neighbors tried to the prevent the evacuation of their home.

The family's troubles began 14 September as settlers announced their plan to move in, claiming ownership. An Israeli court recently ruled in favor of the settlers.

The family's home is not in Israel and its occupants are not Israeli citizens, but Israel considers East Jerusalem part of its capital. Israel's claims to the city are not recognized abroad.

A spokesman for Israel's Jerusalem municipality did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
