Israel pressurizes Palestinians to leave Jerusalem

Israel’s extreme pressure on Jerusalem’s Palestinian dwellers to leave their homes through a policy of systematic transfer is a complete violation of international law, Human Rights Watch (HRW) has said.

“Israel claims to treat Jerusalem as a unified city, but the reality is effectively one set of rules for Jews and another for Palestinians,” Sarah Leah Whitson, HRW’s Middle East director, said in a report released on Tuesday.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem during the 1967 Six-Day-War in a move never recognised by the international community.

The more than 300,000 Palestinians there have permanent residency status but are not Israeli nationals.
