The Israeli court had postponed looking into the order of evicting the Salem family from their home indefinitely, while the settlers claim ownership of the land.
Earlier, the Israeli occupation forces demolished the Salhiyya family's home in Sheikh Jarrah Wednesday, after the occupation's SWAT teams raided the home and forcefully evicted family members and those protesting alongside them.
Although civilian injuries were reported after the IOF assaulted the family, ambulances were prevented from entering the area to help the injured.
