Al-Quds, 4 Safar 1437/16 November 2015 (MINA) – The Hebrew radio has revealed an Israeli official plan to build a new outpost for Jewish settlers in Bab al-Sahera (Herod’s Gate) in the Old City of Occupied Jerusalem.
The Israeli government on Sunday published on one of its websites a tender for the building of 21 housing units for settlers as well as a synagogue and a Jewish school in the Old City, according to the Israeli army’s radio station, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islmaic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
The radio station quoted an Israeli official from the ministry of construction and housing as saying that the plan was deleted from the website after it was posted by mistake due to its sensitivity and the serious political repercussions that might result from it.
For its part, the Israeli settlement monitor group in Jerusalem Ir Amim denied the plan was announced by mistake and affirmed that it reflected the real intents of premier Benjamin Netanyahu in the holy city.(T/P008/R04)
