What happens after eviction from east Jerusalem? Part 1

By Sabrina Myre

This week marks the fiftieth anniversary of the six-day war between Israel and its  neighbours: Egypt, Jordan and Syria. Israel won a clear victory. It meant the ancient part of Jerusalem, in the east, came under the control of Israel and half a century later Palestinians are still fighting in the courts to keep their homes in east Jerusalem.

The UN says that in the ancient walled part of Jerusalem, which has many sacred sites and which has an area of just under one square kilometre, there are 21 households in danger of being evicted.

In the first of a two-part report, Sabrina Myre meets a Palestinian who was recently kicked out of his house in the Old City of east Jerusalem. She meets him as he makes a visit back to the home, where his parents are still allowed to live.
