 road4

 

Beit Safafa is a Palestinian village in East Jerusalem. It is split in two parts by Road4.

 

For the Jewish settlers on the West Bank, Road4 makes the connection with Jerusalem easier . For the inhabitants of Beit Safafa, it brings nothing but inconveniences. They perceive it as additional harassment to drive Palestinians out of East Jerusalem.

 

Protest and legal campaigns against the construction have slowed the process down but the road was built anyway (2016).
