Bir Nabala is one of Jerusalem’s many Palestinian neighborhoods isolated from the rest of the city by massive sections of the eight-meter high concrete Wall. Bir Nabala was once a bustling commercial center, linking the people of northern West Bank cities such and Jenin and Tulkarm with the greater Jerusalem metropolis.
