Description : This family has lived in the Qunbar neighborhood, located between Ras al-Amoud in Jerusalem and the nearby town of Abu Dees, ever since the 1950s. Around 140 people live in the neighborhood, more than half of them are minors. The separation wall built around Jerusalem cut the neighborhood off from its local town, Abu Dis, and linked it to Jerusalem. But many of the residents hold West Bank ID cards, which means it’s illegal under Israeli law for them to be in Jerusalem and they need an Israeli permit to remain in their houses. Since 2005, the ICRC has worked to help the people there by providing a list of names at the military barriers, enabling residents to access their homes without needing a permit. The ICRC also coordinates to enable patients to access hospital treatment or to allow service suppliers to get into the neighborhood, including electricity company vehicles, gas vehicles and trucks carrying fodder for livestock.
