The Israeli municipal authority in Occupied Jerusalem intends to accelerate procedures to build the hotel zone on a hill in Jabel Mukaber neighborhood, south of the Aqsa Mosque.
Deputy head of the Israeli municipality Meir Turgeman, chairman of the planning and building board, invited the companies that won tenders for the building of six hotels to a meeting during the current week to brief them on the details of the new plan to speed the launch of the project.
According to the Hebrew newspaper Iroshalim, there are Israeli intents to enable the construction contractors to obtain building permits as quickly as possible through shrinking the bureaucratic procedures pursued by the municipality.
The newspaper quoted Turgeman as saying that this step would be the appropriate response to the recent Jerusalem ramming attack.
He also said that the municipality would support construction projects everywhere in the city to promote Israel’s hegemony over Jerusalem.
