A majority of Palestinians in East Jerusalem, including three out of four children, live in poverty, an Israeli rights group has said.
In a report released on Monday, the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (Acri) accused Israel of neglect and discrimination in its policies.
Despite the conditions, only 10 per cent of East Jerusalem’s 300,000 Palestinians have access to social services to help remedy the situation, the organisation said.
“A unified Jerusalem does not exist,” the Israeli group said. “The truth is, two cities exist side by side.”
