OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Israeli forces Judaization campaigns and brutal practices against Jerusalemites aiming to displace them from the holy city continue.

The Israeli Magistrate's Court imposed a 13-thousand-dollar sum against the Jerusalemite Daoud Siam, 35, for his alleged attack on an Israeli settler who tried to confiscate the house of Siam's grandfather, Wadi Hilweh Information Center revealed.

Siam told the center that the court issued a decision in absentia on Sunday asking him to pay a 13-thousand-dollar sum to the Israeli settler who claimed to have been assaulted by Siam.

The case dates back over four years, Siam said. In 2009, four Israeli settlers tried to break into the house of Siam's grandfather in Wadi Hilweh in Silwan while no one was home. When Daoud arrived one of the settlers instantly raised his gun and then they withdrew after verbal altercation.

Siam was then arrested and detained for 24 hours and a fine of 1,500 shekels, and 150 hours of community service, in addition to 3 years imprisonment with a stay of execution for 6 months.

According to the court's decision, the first sentence was a compensation to the public right, however the new order is a compensation to the settler.
