Living in fear of evictions

Uncertainty descends over Palestinians as Israel continues demolishing homes.

    The United Nations, the United States and the European Union have all called on Israel to stop the illegal eviction of Palestinians and the demolition of their homes.

    Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary-general, urged Israel to end its "provocative actions" in East Jerusalem, while calling for it to freeze all settlement activity in the occupied West Bank.

    Despite that, the sight of Palestinians in East Jerusalem being forced out of their homes has become an all too familiar scene.
