Israel Commemorates 'Jerusalem Day' Amid Eviction Protests

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL - MAY 10: A Palestinian demonstrator is arrested by Israeli police at the Al-Aqsa Mosque during Israel's 'Jerusalem Day' on May 10, 2021 in Jerusalem, Israel. The Israeli national holiday, which celebrates the unification of Jerusalem under Israel's control following the 1967 Six-Day War, comes amid protests over the potential eviction of Palestinian families from Jerusalem's Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood. The Israeli Supreme Court was expected to rule today on whether to uphold a lower court's decision in a longstanding legal dispute between the resident families and Jewish settlers who claim ownership of the land, but the court delayed its decision for up to 30 days due to a request from the attorney general.
