AMMAN — Jordan on Monday denounced the forced eviction of a Palestinian family in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood in occupied Jerusalem, according of a Foreign Ministry statement. The ministry's spokesperson Haitham Abu Al Foul said that evictions and displacement of the Palestinians in the occupied East Jerusalem are regarded a violation to international and humanitarian laws.

Israel as an occupation force is responsible for protecting Palestinians rights to their houses, in accordance with international law, he said, adding that the ongoing unilateral Israeli actions, notably confiscating Palestinian lands, demolishing homes and evictions of Palestinians from their homes are illegal practices that establish the occupation and undermine the chances of achieving just and comprehensive peace on the basis of a two-state solution.
