A Palestinian woman flashes the victory sign in front of a house that was evicted from its Palestinian residents and where Jewish settlers live now, in Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood of Arab east Jerusalem on August 9, 2009. Israeli police evicted last week two Palestinian families from their homes in the sensitive neighbourhood, defying international protests over Jewish settlement activity in the area. An Israeli court had ordered the eviction of the 53 Palestinians, including 19 minors, following an appeal by the Nahalat Shimon International settler group which claimed Jewish settlers have title deeds for the properties, despite UN and Palestinian denials.
