50 Years of Israel’s Occupation: The Continued Expulsion of Palestinian Jerusalemites
June 11, 2017
This fact sheet focuses on the pretexts used by the Israeli occupying authorities in order to expel Palestinians from Jerusalem (Section I). However, it is impossible to separate the forcible transfer of Palestinians from the corresponding policy of replacing that population with an Israeli Jewish population, while physically and administratively isolating the city from the rest of the occupied West Bank. Sections II and III will therefore touch upon these elements in order to place the systematic policy of forced displacement into its broader context.
