Talpiot, is a neighborhood in south Jerusalem that was established in the 1930s by Zionist Jews. Following the Israeli War of Independence, Talpiot became almost completely surrounded by Jordan-controlled East Jerusalem for 19 years, but it remained settled under Israeli control. The neighborhood expanded significantly only after the Six Days War, mainly over lands near and beyond the old separation line between Israel and Jordan, including lands formerly administrated by the UN. It also includes an important industrial area.
