Palestinian Factions: Sheikh Jarrah Cause Enjoys National, International Consensus
The Hamas movement rejects any form of compromise regarding the houses of Palestinians threatened with confiscation in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.
Hamas Political Bureau member, Haroun Nasser al-Din, said the Movement rejects any form of compromise over the houses threatened with confiscation in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied al-Quds, and that the judiciary of the Israeli occupation is part of the latter's security system, which facilitates the process of controlling the lands and homes of occupied al-Quds for the settlement associations.
Haroun stressed that international law criminalizes any changes to the status quo carried out by the occupation authorities in occupied territories and that any attempt to gradually transfer ownership of the Sheikh Jarrah land is a fraudulent operation aimed at gradually controlling the neighborhoods and real estate of occupied al-Quds.
He confirmed that the Sheikh Jarrah cause has gained national and international consensus because it is a just cause and thanks to the valor of its people in the face of the Israeli occupation's various arbitrary measures. “We place our utmost trust and hope in the people of the neighborhood, and the Resistance will remain faithful to Palestinian stances, rights, and principles,” he said.
Haroun stressed, "Our people will not accept being expelled from their homes again, as time can never go back, and our people and their Resistance are able to turn the tables on everyone who conspires and dares to violate their principles and sanctities."
In the same context, the Palestinian al-Ahrar Movement affirmed its rejection of any settlement, warning that the occupation’s postponement and stalling in issuing the final decision concerning the homes of Sheikh Jarrah Neighborhood citizens is part of a Zionist scheme aimed at pressuring and intimidating the citizens to force them to accept any solutions, even at the expense of their historical right to their homes.
This came following the "compromise" that was proposed by the Israeli Supreme Court, as per which the residents will be protected and recognized as first-generation tenants.
