Call to stop the forced eviction in Sheikh Jarrah and military attacks by Israel

The clashes triggered by eviction orders against Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah, East Jerusalem, have been intensifying with a large number of injuries and deaths each day. The eviction orders by the Israeli Magistrate Court that preceded this situation is a violation of international law and basic human rights. The YWCA of Japan, as a part of the World YWCA movement that strives to “create justice, gender equality and a world without violence and war”, has long worked in solidarity with the YWCA of Palestine. We call on the Japanese Government to take a stronger stance in urging the Israeli Government to respect its obligations under international law, and to stop the violence and military attacks against the Palestinian people.
