The Israeli Ministry of Public Security intends to install a checkpoint in southern occupied Jerusalem to enable Israeli settlers to reach Ein Haniya spring which, in turn, will prevent Palestinians from reaching it.
Hebrew newspaper Haaretz said on Tuesday that Ein Haniya spring is located on the Wallaja/Har Gilo road between Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
In the past few months, Jerusalem Development Authority, Antiquities Authority, Nature and Parks Authority, and National parks were carrying out archaeological excavations in the place. As part of the excavations, ponds were drained and streets were built and an old building was renovated into a restaurant.
