Postponed: December 26th Supreme Court Hearing on al-Walajeh Residents' Appeal

22 December 2021
The following alert has been jointly issued by Ir Amim and Bimkom.

As a follow up to our previous alert this week concerning the decisive December 26th Supreme Court hearing on the al-Walajeh appeal, the court today postponed the hearing to an unspecified date. Following a request submitted by the al-Walajeh residents’ attorney, the court agreed to defer the hearing. 

It should be noted that the postponement was due to a technical issue and not indicative of a change of circumstances concerning the case. That being said, the demolition freeze on the 38 homes remains in place.

Ir Amim and Bimkom will continue to update concerning any further developments. 

See our previous alert for additional details on the case.

The part of al-Walajeh facing mass home demolitions is the brown shaded areas within the pink circle between the Separation Barrier (red line) and the Jerusalem municipal border/annexation line (blue line)
