Az Za’ayyem 1

Twisted scrap metal lies in front of the salvaged wood and metal structures of the Az Za’ayyem Jahalin Bedouin community. Semi-abandoned Palestinian apartment blocks lie in the background. Once desirable these homes have decreased drastically in market value as inhabitants have suffered from economic difficulties and a strict permit regime that denies many the right to live in Jerusalem. Many have left in order to avoid future displacement or to seek better opportunities. Photo EAPPI/K. Ranta.
