Peace Now Settlement Watch News Flash: The Abu Nab Family Has Just Been Forcefully Evicted from Its Home in Batan Al-Hawal in Silwan

Earlier this morning (19.10) the police has enforced a de-facto curfew in Batan Al-Hawa as it sought to evict the Abu-Nab family from its home in favor of settlers.

The forceful eviction took place just a few minutes ago and the family is now out of its home. A truck, meant
 to pick-up the family's belongings, was seen in the area. This is the first time since 2008 that a forceful eviction has taken place.

This is a highly irresponsible move, to say the least, for such a tense and violent period, and one that can lead to increased violence.
