0202 Editor's Note: Anata is a Palestinian town in the Jerusalem Governorate in the central West Bank, located four kilometers northeast of Jerusalem's Old City. Together with Shuafat refugee camp, the village is almost entirely surrounded by the separation barrier, cutting it off from Jerusalem and surrounding villages.
Clashes continue to break out around Jerusalem following President Trump's announcement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on December 6th.
