Hundreds of Palestinians and left-wing activists demonstrated in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in east Jerusalem on Friday, to protest the eviction of the Shamasneh family from their home in the neighborhood, and against the Jewish settlement in east Jerusalem.

The Protesters intend to demonstrate at the Supreme Court on Monday morning, ahead of the court's decision about the eviction of the Shamasneh family. The family claims to own the house, while the Public Trustee determined Jews lived in the house before 1948, and issued an eviction notice for the family four years ago.
