Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat announced on Sunday evening that the municipality will not evacuate and seal off Beit Yehonatan in Silwan.

The announcement comes after Ateret Kohanim, the organization that built the Jewish home in east Jerusalem, stopped demanding that Arab residents be removed from the neighboring Abu Nab house, which had been a Yemenite synagogue in the 1940s.
