Suspension of the evacuation of 4 families from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Jerusalem  The Israeli Supreme Court "partially" accepted the appeal of four families in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem, against the Israeli authorities' decision to evict them from their homes.  On Tuesday, the Israeli Supreme Court "partially" accepted the appeal of four families in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem, against the Israeli authorities' decision to evict them from their homes.  The families' lawyer, Sami Irsheid, said that the decision was "accepting the appeal to cancel the eviction orders against four families, namely the Kurds, Skafi, Al-Jaouni and Abu Hasna."  Irsheid added, "The decision states that any previous decisions on the issue of ownership do not bind the parties, and the issue of ownership must be decided through rights settlement procedures," according to his statement to Anadolu Agency.  Settlement of rights is a procedure for the land authority to determine ownership. He continued, "The resolution also stipulates that until a decision is made on the issue of ownership, Palestinian citizens are considered protected renters in homes, and they must deposit the rent allowance in a joint trust account for family and settlers' attorneys, and these funds are kept until the issue of ownership is decided."  And he added, "After deciding on the issue of ownership, the accumulated funds are released to the party that the court decides to be the owner."  Lawyer Irsheid continued: "Until the issue of ownership is decided upon, families are preserved in their properties, and they have the right to carry out any repair and maintenance of homes without any opposition, and under no circumstances have the right to demand the eviction of families as long as they deposit the annual rent."  He pointed out that the court did not set a date for deciding the issue of ownership. Although the decision is for four families only, lawyer Irsheed believes that its impact "will extend to all other families facing eviction decisions in the courts."  Irsheid explained that the court's decision is "final" and binding on all parties, and is not subject to appeal, as it is the highest judicial body in Israel.  In turn, the Israeli newspaper, "Haaretz", said that the decision allows residents to remain in their homes in East Jerusalem until "a final decision is issued in the ongoing property dispute with an Israeli settlement organization."  She added, "The court allowed them to keep their homes for the time being, in exchange for a reduced rent paid to the group of settlers who claim home ownership."  In recent years, Israeli courts have ruled to evict Palestinian families from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood. The decision to evict families from their homes last May led to the outbreak of confrontations that spread to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian interior.  The families have been staying in their homes since 1956 under an agreement with the Jordanian government and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees "UNRWA".  However, Israeli settlement groups are calling on families to evict the homes, claiming that they were built on land owned by “Jews” before 1948.
