High Court rules in favour of Silwan family and refutes settler's claims
The Israeli High Court has ruled in favour of the Qarain family in Silwan, denying settler's claims to the home. The house in question belongs to Haje Zeinab Qarain. Son, Mousa Qarain, is currently living in the house, which is on an 80acre piece of land. The struggle between the residing family and settlers began in 2004 when settlers claimed that they have bought the land. This has lead to raids on the family home by police who were ordering the family to leave the home.
