Approving the building of a settlement project in the neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah
The construction and planning committee approved on Wednesday to implement the settlement project numbered 68858 in the neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah. According to the new settlement project, twelve floors will be built (three floors underground and 9 above) which will be used for a religious school, meeting room, sports facilities, dorms and parking. The total area will be 1.9 Dunoms. The construction and planning committee had ratified the project 7 months ago but one of the members in the municipality’s council objected the implementation of such a project in an Arab neighborhood. The project was discussed once again last Wednesday during a special session and the objection was declined and they decided to implement the settlement project.
