In the outskirts of Jerusalem, the village of Lifta is the last deserted Palestinian village still standing in modern day Israel.

The village is now in the midst of a legal battle. A Jerusalem district court will decide whether Lifta should be preserved as a historical site or developed into luxury housing.

Israeli and Palestinian activists are petitioning the potential development by petitioning the court.
