Wall at Azerriyya

al Azeriyya, nr Jerusalem

Azeriyya is essentially a suburb of East Jerusalem but it is not considered part of it now. It is Israeli government policy to 'remove' Palestinians from East Jerusalem which means that with this 're-zoning', newborns in Azeriyya cannot get East Jerusalem residency cards. Meanwhile residents of the illegal settlement of Ma'aret Addumin (which is further away from Jerusalem), are considered to be Jerusalemites.
