Summary: In October 2010, UN OCHA released a factsheet that addresses the ongoing attempts to evict Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah in East Jerusalem in the context of efforts by settler organizations to establish a sustained presence in this Palestinian residential neighborhood. The evictions raise a number of serious humanitarian concerns. Settler organizations have stated their intent to build at least 540 settlement units in Sheikh Jarrah, placing an estimated 475 Palestinians at risk of forced eviction, dispossession and displacement.
