UNRWA concerned over Israel’s threatening to evict Jerusalem family

JERUSALEM � The United Nation Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said on Tuesday it was concerned about the humanitarian impact of the threatened eviction of the Shamasneh family from their home in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.

The UNRWA called on the Israeli authorities to reconsider their decision, saying the threatened Shamasneh family is a long-standing Palestine refugee family in East Jerusalem, which is an occupied territory and affected by continued settlement expansion contrary to international law.

It is a matter of deep concern that Palestine refugees who have already endured multiple displacements should be subject to the humiliation of the kind inflicted by forced evictions, the UNRWA said in a statement.
