Al Jazeera English - Middle East - Israel evicts Palestinian families

Al Jazeera English - Middle East - Israel evicts Palestinian families: "Israeli security forces have forcibily evicted two Palestinian families from their homes in East Jerusalem after a court rejected an appeal against their eviction.

The al-Ghawi and al-Hanoun families who were evicted on Sunday have been living in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood since 1956.

Israel has reportedly set aside the land their houses were built on for a planned hotel project."
