The Israeli Supreme Court has approved a law which allows Tel Aviv to confiscate abandoned Palestinian-owned homes in the occupied east Jerusalem al-Quds.
The approval of the Absentee Property Law will pave the way for Israel to take over property that belongs to Palestinians who were forced out of their homeland following the war in 1948. Palestinian officials have reacted to the ruling, dismissing it as racial. They say the main purpose of the law is to totally remove Palestinians’ trace in Jerusalem al-Quds. Palestinians say Israel’s trying to change the city’s status quo to pave the way for the settlement expansion and the Judaization of al-Quds.
