The climate of East Jerusalem (Palestinian Territories)
East Jerusalem is the old part of Jerusalem. The city is also known as the religious capital of the world. Jerusalem is a sacred place for the three largest religions in the world and shrines of all these religions can be found in the city. Ever since Roman times there have been conflicts in Jerusalem. First the Romans chased away the Jews. Later on the Christians tried to chase out Muslims. The scars of thousands of years of violent history can be found all over the city. Four different quarters can be found within the city: a Jewish quarter, a Christian quarter, an Armenian quarter and a Muslim quarter. The most important shrines of the three largest religions can be found in Jerusalem. The Temple Mount with the Wailing Wall and the Al Aqsa Mosque are all situated in the vicinity of each other which makes a simple division impossible. East Jerusalem has been an area of conflicts throughout the entire 20th century. In 1948 East Jerusalem was under Jordan authority, but later conquered by Israel in 1967. Although the State of Israel named Jerusalem its capital this has not been recognized as such by the UN. East Jerusalem has a Mediterranean climate with mild winters. Although snow sometimes falls during winter subzero temperatures are uncommon. Summers are warm and may even be hot. Most precipitation falls during spring and autumn.
