In the largest leak in the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Al Jazeera has obtained 1,676 classified documents in total.

The documents are derived from a decade of meetings, internal emails, reports and studies, notes, maps and draft agreements that detail talks between the Israeli government, the Palestinian Authority, and the US.

The most controversial revelation so far is the apparent willingness of the PA to give concessions on disputed areas of Jerusalem.

The PA dismissed Al Jazeera's report as lies.

David Foster spoke to former Israeli foreign minister, Shlomo Ben Ami, about the Palestine Papers.
