OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Israeli Occupation Authorities (IOA) approved a project to build a new settlement neighborhood in Jabal Abu Ghneim (Har Homa) settlement, including the construction of 68 housing units.
The IOA will start building the new units in about six months and they are expected to be ready in 2014.
The Hebrew weekly Yorshalim newspaper reported on Friday that the Israeli "Abisror Moshe" company won the tender of the new project, noting that it had previously implemented two settlement projects in Jabal Abu Ghneim and is about to end a third one composed of 77 housing units that stretch over 6.3 dunums.
The company is currently establishing a settlement project near Kibbutz Ramat Rachel dubbed "Jerusalem Park" which oversees desert landscape.
The Central court for Administrative Affairs in occupied Jerusalem had rejected last week a petition submitted against the establishment of a cultural center located near the Palace of High Commissioner on Mount Scopus.
The judge accepted the position of the IOA considering the obtained building permit conforms to the main plan of the city and the municipality expects the completion of the construction of the cultural center during a year and half.
