Palestinians in Kufr Aqab: `We live here just to wait`Jaclynn Ashly - Aljazeera - Kufr Aqab and Shuafat refugee camp are neglected by the Jerusalem municipality, but beyond the control of the Palestinian Authority (PA). Police are absent and municipal services are limited. "All of these people are living here solely to keep their Jerusalem IDs," Moien Odeh, a Jerusalem-based legal expert, told Al Jazeera, gesturing to a sea of high-rise buildings in Kufr Aqab. The lack of available land means that these homes are built higher and higher to accommodate an exploding population, estimated to be about 65,000.
