CND is supporting this Palestine Solidarity Campaign protest against continued violent acts of ethnic cleansing.
At 3am on Wednesday 19th January, Israeli security forces raided the Salhiya family house in Sheikh Jarrah, arresting and injuring multiple family members. After the family, who have lived in the house since 1956, refused to be evicted, Israeli troops barricaded then stormed their home at 3am.
Yasmin Salhiya reports that soldiers beat her 9 year old sister and aunt, who is now unable to move from her injuries, before destroying the family’s home. By dawn, only the rubble remained.
Over 1500 Palestinians currently live under the threat of home demolitions in occupied Jerusalem.
We must support Palestinian grassroots resistance by demanding our own government holds nuclear-armed Israel accountable for its actions that amount to the crime of apartheid. It’s time to mobilise for Palestine once more.
