Touring the Streets of Jerusalem - Together

Jerusalem Divided/United

Where Yafo Street and Shivtei Yisrael meet, and Shlomo HaMelech Street turns into Road 60 is a corner of the Old City as well as the Jerusalem Municipality - it is also known as Kikar Tzahal.

40 years ago, when Jerusalem was divided, this street was a border of divided Jerusalem.

Below you can the new (square) and old (rounded) sections of the Jerusalem Municipality buildings.

If you look close up, you can see the remains on the older section of the building from when Jordanian snipers used to shoot at the people inside the building from the Old City, just across the street.
