A Portugalian delegation from the World Peace Council (WPC) and from the Portugalian womens institutions and unions visited the sit-in tents in Al-Bustan and Sheikh Jarrah neighborhoods during which they were briefed on the suffering of Palestinian citizens in the neighborhoods resulting from the Israeli measures aiming at uprooting from their homes.

The delegation was accompanied by Fadwa Khader, member of the Political Bureau of the Palestinian Peoples Party, Director General of JCSER.

Director General of JCSER. said, The delegation was briefed on the suffering of Palestinians, especially in Silwan and Sheikh Jarrah, regarding what is taking place is a policy of ethnic cleansing against Palestinians.

It is noted that a general strike Ras was held in Al-Amud, east of the Old City of Jerusalem, in protest against Jerusalem Mayors visit to the neighborhood to open a school affiliated with the Jerusalem Municipality.

School students and the locals raised Palestinian flags near the school, forcing Israeli police to trace some students and to take the flags down.

Under the protection of large units of police, the Mayors visit was limited to holding a meeting with officials and inspectors from the Ministry of Education.

The locals expressed their total refusal of the visit describing it as provocative. The Mayors visit was unwelcomed for being responsible for the recent demolitions in Silwan and other neighborhoods in the city. He was the one who took the decision to accelerate the demolition of Palestinian houses in Al-Bustan neighborhood.

Local residents of Silwan and Ras Al-Amud refused the Mayors visit to their neighborhood for being solely and directly responsible for the demolition of their neighborhood and the displacement of more than 1,500 Palestinians. Was the Mayor expecting to be received with flowers while he sent bulldozers to demolish two houses in Silwan and Sur Baher yesterday?! a local resident said. If he considers himself that he is offering a present to the neighborhood by building classrooms, we affirm that they are built from the taxes paid by the local residents. Forty percent of the students in Silwan and Ras Al-Amud study in schools outside their residential areas due to the huge shortage of classrooms for which the Municipality is responsible, he added.
