The government sold or leased properties in Arab areas of east Jerusalem to settlers at low prices and helped them cement a Jewish presence in disputed areas of the holy city, according to court documents published on Sunday.

The documents are the first to show how easily settlers were able to put down stakes in these areas with the help of successive Israeli governments.

The documents refer to 11 properties, but activists say the state is withholding information.
