The Israeli Supreme Court renews its proposal to the residents of Sheikh Jarrah

Jerusalem24 – Today, Monday, the Israeli Supreme Court renewed its submission of a compromise solution that it had previously proposed regarding the eviction of residents of the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, east of Jerusalem, from their homes.

According to the Israeli Ynet website, the proposal submitted again to the Palestinian and Israeli parties is that these families be recognized as protected tenants for a period of 15 years, until another arrangement or agreement is reached.

It includes that during this period the rent will be paid to the Nahalat Shimon settlement association that bought the land, and the latter will pledge not to evict the residents from their homes.

The proposal aims for Palestinian families to recognize Israeli ownership of the homes and to pay a symbolic annual rent.

The families had previously rejected this proposal, which made the Supreme Court previously to postpone the consideration of the case.
