East Jerusalem (Arabic: القدس الشرقية, al-Quds ash-Sharqiya) is the eastern part of Jerusalem that was annexed by Jordan and designated for Palestinians after the 1947–1949 Palestine war. Israel got control of it, along with the West Bank, after the Six-Day War. Following the First Intifada, the State of Palestine and the Palestinian National Authority both claimed East Jerusalem as their capital city. Israeli law is still in place there now.
