Ramallah nightclubs show polarisation of West Bank

Help

The town of Ramallah in the West Bank has become the home to a thriving night life, with new bars opening every month.

A large number of government officials, foreign diplomats and aid workers live in the town, but the UN estimates 47% of the population lives in poverty.

Combined with tight restrictions on leaving the West Bank, it is causing some resentment towards those who can afford to spend their time and money in the clubs.
