Evicted Palestinian Family Lives in Street--Israeli Settlers Move In

December 2009
Washington Report on Middle East Affairs;Dec2009, Vol. 28 Issue 9, p17
The article describes the condition of one family that was forcibly taken out from their home by Israeli police in August 2009. The Al-Ghawi family was forced to leave their home of 53 years and went to live out in the streets after Israeli settlers reportedly took possession of their home. It is said that the same situation happened back in 1954 when the United Nations Relief Works Agency made the plots for people displaced by the war in 1948.
