Lawyer: Israel to evict 100 Palestinians in Jerusalem

Feb. 13, 2013 8:19 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 14, 2013 7:16 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Around 100 Palestinian Bedouins could be homeless by the end of the week after Israeli authorities issued eviction orders to 20 families in northeast Jerusalem, their lawyer said Wednesday.

An Israeli court initially ordered the families, from the al-Arara tribe, to leave their land in Jaba within three days, but the lawyer managed to delay the order for 15 days, which will run out this week, he told a news conference in Jerusalem.

Jaba borders Adam, an illegal Jewish settlement, which the families say Israel plans to expand onto their land.
