Gaza11Sep6OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-Elad settler group has revealed that it is preparing for the implementation of 11 new settlement projects approved in 2017 and 2018.

Elad said in a statement that some of these projects do not require the approval of the Israeli government or the Jerusalem municipality, but the settler group still enjoys the support of both parties.

In response to an objection filed by the Israeli National Fund against a permit given by the Jerusalem municipality to Elad to establish a 784-meter zip-line in the city, the municipality affirmed that the approval was legal.

This project is part of a series of settlement projects adopted by Elad in the Old City of Jerusalem, including the establishment of a restaurant and a cable car, under the pretext of promoting foreign and domestic tourism.

Palestinian lawyer Ehab Abu Ghoush said that the new projects target large areas of Palestinian land in East Jerusalem which was occupied in 1967; therefore, any Israeli settlement activity in these areas is illegal and violates international law.

Abu Ghoush affirmed that the disagreement between the Israeli National Fund and Elad group is fake and it is only an attempt to legalize the confiscation of occupied Palestinian lands.
