Hundreds of protesters marched in East Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood on Friday, against the eviction of the Shamanseh family, who forced from their home on Tuesday morning. Among the detainees were two residents of the neighbourhood: a young boy, reportedly detained for a short period of time, and another person found waving the Palestinian flag. The Shamansehs, a family of eight, had lived in the area for over 50 years. This was the first eviction in Sheikh Jarrah in 8 years.
