“Occupation forces close off Al-Ein Street in the town of Silwan , and are vacating one of the [Palestinian] residences for the benefit of [Israeli] settlers.”
– Wadi Hilweh Information Center
– “What, who sold [to the Israelis] again?”
0202 Editor’s note:
 Silwan is a predominantly Palestinian neighborhood on the outskirts of the Old City of Jerusalem. In 1991, a movement was formed to promote Jewish settlement in Silwan. Today there are a few hundred Jewish families living in the area amid approximately 55,000 Palestinians. Consequently, the town remains a flash point in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
