The International Center for Justice for Palestinians (ICJP) file the case of the Salhiya family in Sheikh Jarrah, Jerusalem, to the International Criminal Court.
The London-based center said: “The Salhia family, whose house the occupation forces demolished in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied Jerusalem, and is trying to force them to vacate their land, had assigned a law firm to file the case with the International Criminal Court last October.”
The lawsuit stated, “The large-scale destruction and appropriation of Palestinian property by Israeli military force amounts to a grave violation of the Geneva Conventions of 1949, and is considered a war crime in accordance with the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court of 1998,” according to the statement.
The center indicated that “Bindman’s Solicitors” law firm and legal consultancy participated in raising the case to the International Criminal Court.
Last year, the Pre-Trial Chamber of the International Criminal Court concluded that its jurisdiction extends within the territories occupied in 1967.
According to the International Center for Justice for the Palestinians, “the filing of this case comes after the failure of repeated attempts to seek justice through the Israeli courts.

The Salhia family is among the dozens of Palestinian refugee families that settled in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in 1956, after an agreement with the Jordanian Ministry of Construction and Development and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees “UNRWA.”
A UNRWA statement stated that “Israeli forces violently raided the home of the Palestine refugee family at 3:00 am on Wednesday, 19 January, while the family members, including an elderly woman and a child, were asleep.
He pointed out, “Within a few hours, the Salhiya family’s home and property were destroyed, and all traces of nearly 40 years of their history in the neighborhood were erased.
