EU condemns Israeli eviction of Jerusalemite family from its home

The European Union’s mission in occupied Jerusalem has condemned the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) for evicting a Jerusalemite family from its home in Beit Hanina suburb.

The mission condemned the step in a press release on Saturday, and expressed concern about the expulsion of the Natshe family from its house on 18 April and about plans for the installation of a settlement outpost in the midst of the traditional Palestinian suburb.

It underlined that settlements in occupied lands are illegal according to the international law.

The EU said that the fourth Geneva Convention prohibits the displacement of citizens in occupied lands.
