Jerusalem is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world – its history goes back over six millennia. The city, known as Yerushaláyim in Hebrew and Al-Quds in Arabic, contains holy sites to three global religions: Islam, Christianity and Judaism. While it serves as the capital of Israel, the city has been one of the flash points of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for over half a century – the city’s Eastern portion, known as East Jerusalem has been disputed for decades.
