Israel’s Supreme Court has deferred a ruling on the expulsion of four Palestinian families from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem. The court instead offered the families a deal: They could stay in their homes for now if they begin paying rent to a Jewish settlement organization which claims ownership over the disputed properties. The Palestinian families rejected the deal, insisting they were the legal owners. The United Nations has described the planned evictions as a possible war crime. Later in the broadcast, we’ll go to East Jerusalem for the latest.
