Residents of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah are scheduled to hold a protest vigil in the area on Friday in an effort to protest "violent evictions" from their homes, Gush Shalom said on Thursday.

In a statement, the left-leaning NGO stated the residents are protesting "violent evictions from their homes, the taking over of the neighborhood by the settlers, and the Judaization of East Jerusalem"

Gush Shalom, petitioning for the residents, said they call upon those who support their struggle to join them at 4 p.m. at the Sheikh Jarrah Garden on Nablus Road and Dahlmann Street on Friday.
