Palestinians learn to survive in divided land

East Jerusalem neighbourhood populated mostly by Palestinians remains under Israeli control.

Palestinians are building thousands of new apartments in a part of Occupied East Jerusalem without Israeli approval.

This new development comes thanks to a quirk in the layout of the Separation Wall which splits the city.

The wall cuts off an area called Kufr Aqab, and places the area on the West Bank side.

This would mean that Palestinians who live in the area can keep their East Jerusalem identity cards and still get access to services in Israel.

Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports from Kufr Aqab.
