Although Sheikh Jarrah makes up just a tiny part of occupied East Jerusalem, the area is a major source of tension between Palestinians and Israelis.
A recent order to evict Palestinian families has triggered days of violent protests.
On Friday, more than 200 people were injured when Israeli security forces stormed the nearby Al-Aqsa Mosque compound to clear demonstrators.
Despite international calls for restraint, the protests are intensifying.
So why is the Sheikh Jarrah dispute so contentious?
