Settlers take over two commercial stores in the old city of Jerusalem
Under protection from the Israeli Police, settlers took over two commercial stores on Monday morning in Alhakari neighbourhood in the old city of Jerusalem. The Israeli Supreme Court has issued a decision to confiscate a home for Zaloom family and the two commercial stores, on the pretext that these properties are “Absentee Property” even before 1948. The 35-square meters stores belong to the family of Wazwaz, and they have been closed for several years. Dozens of settlers emptied the property and changed the locks; they closed the doors using a welding machine and then left the area after confiscating everything that was inside the stores. It is noteworthy that the two stores were closed 10 years ago after the death of their owner, Ismaeel Wazwaz.
