Back to LiftaLand

A judge struck down Israeli plans to develop Lifta, an abandoned Arab village on Jerusalem’s northwestern outskirts. Haaretz reports: The appellants had claimed the plan would deprive the former residents – some of whom are still living in East Jerusalem – of their rights to properties they left behind when fleeing the area in 1948.

Israel Responds to Guardian Child Abuse Charge
