Letter to the Prime Minister Regarding Human Rights Violations in Silwan

Demolitions have begun at Silwan by Israeli-state authorities even as numerous independent international agencies have called for forced evictions to end.

Silwan is a neighborhood in east Jerusalem adjacent to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, one of the most sacred places to Muslims internationally. It is estimated that 60% of the 1,500 Palestinian residents of Silwan in East Jerusalem who are about to be displaced by Israel are children.

The demolition of the neighbourhood of Silwan is in gross violation of international law.

Send a letter today at www.nccm.ca/silwan asking Prime Minister Trudeau and Minister Garneau to urge the Israeli government to stop the destruction in Silwan.
