Palestinians are building thousands of new apartments in part of Occupied East Jerusalem, without Israeli approval.
It’s thanks to a quirk in the layout of the Separation Wall which splits the city.
The wall cuts off an area called Kufr Aqab – putting it on the West Bank side.
That means Palestinians who live there can keep their East Jerusalem identity cards and still get access to services in Israel.
Al Jazeera’s Nicole Johnston reports from Kufr Aqab.

In the West Bank the disposal of medical waste is a major problem, it should be incinerated, but instead it’s often taken to the nearest landfill.
Many people are at risk of catching diseases from the used products.
Al Jazeera’s Nadim Baba reports from Jenin in the Occupied West Bank.
“Miral,” a new film by acclaimed director Julian Schnabel, is based on a book by Palestinian author Rula Jebreal. It chronicles the lives of four Palestinian women – from 1948 when the state of Israel was created to the 1990s. Through the four women, and especially Miral, the youngest, the film tells the story of the ongoing Israeli – Palestinian conflict. Director Julian Schnabel, a Jewish American, looks at that conflict through Palestinian eyes and that has sparked controversy among Jews in America. VOA’s Penelope Poulou has more.
The film Shooting Hope follows a project that uses photography to bring Palestinian and Lebanese teenagers together.
