Upcoming Supreme Court Hearing Could Lead to Immediate Largescale Demolition in al-Walajeh

The residents of the northern part of al-Walajeh, a traditional Palestinian agricultural village located on the southern perimeter of East Jerusalem (see map below), are under acute threat of being forcibly uprooted from where they have lived and cultivated the land for decades. A court injunction, currently preventing the demolition of 38 homes, could be lifted at the end of March,
subjecting residents to wide-scale displacement.
