Recorded in East Jerusalem on 9.01.12 during sunset in a spot at the City of David, facing the arab village of Silwan, in the outskirts of the Old City. With a predominantly Palestinian population, nowadays Silwan is under Israeli jurisdiction. Regarded as a major archeological site, this area is situated just at the East side of the 1949 Armistice Demarcation Line (Green Line). The international community considers Israeli annexation of East Jerusalem as illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.
