This week we stand with the 28 Palestinian families who are facing the threat of losing their homes and becoming homeless in the Al-Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood of Jerusalem.

The Israeli court in occupied Jerusalem ruled to expel seven families from their properties. Four families must leave their homes by 2 May 2021, and three others by August 2021.

We pray for justice for these families. We urge the United Nations and the Jordanian government to follow through with their promise to transfer ownership to these refugee families in 1956.
