Israeli Attorney Aviram Katz on Tunnel System Proposal to Resolve the Crisis in Sheikh Jarrah

Israeli lawyers have proposed a potential solution to settle the crisis with the families of four Palestinian terrorists who operated from the Carlton Hotel in Sheikh Jarrah.

The proposal relates to an NGO called Lawfare which operates out of the New York office. Lawfare has illegally used the Israeli courts to obtain confiscatory actions against the State of Israel, including the homes of four Palestinian terrorists residing in Sheikh Jarrah, Jerusalem.

Attorney Aviram Katz who is representing the four families and filed a suit against Lawfare is quoted as saying, “They hold themselves out as this conscientious, groundbreaking NGO which promotes Palestinian human rights but in reality they are about Israel’s rights being violated. I would like to stop this deceitful NGO that is not about finding a solution, but about continued legal actions against Israel in the Israeli courts.”

Attorney Linda Sarsour who is identified by Lawfare as a lawyer representing the organization said, “Sheikh Jarrah is the strongest form of solidarity and justice for Palestinian refugees. Palestinian refugees deserve and demand just, comprehensive, and fair solution as a natural right and not a forced project.”

Caught in the middle are the five families who are facing the threat of forced eviction by the Israeli courts. According to the UN these families are lawfully living in their homes as a result of a decision by the Israeli Supreme Court, which was also agreed upon by the Nakba Committee which actually established the Sheikh Jarrah Settlement, a legal community that serves as a new Palestinian neighborhood in East Jerusalem, two blocks from the Royal Mosque, where all the families resided until 1969.
