Jerusalem has informed the UN that is does not intend to discuss the organization's complaint regarding Israel's policies in the capital. Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Sunday met Robert Serry, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, who voiced criticism for the recent eviction of two Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah homes they were illegally occupying. Ayalon responded that Israeli law applied to the whole of Jerusalem and that the matter would not be discussed further. Concerning Serry's call on Israel to allow more humanitarian aid into Gaza, Ayalon said that Israel would be happy to give the Palestinians any assistance they required, after the release of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit.
