Israeli gov’t to okay plan to Judaize Jerusalem Old City

Jerusalem Old City

The Israeli government is expected to approve on Sunday a plan to intensify Jewish presence in the Old City of Occupied Jerusalem, home to the holy al-Aqsa Mosque—the third holiest site in Islam.

According to the Hebrew-speaking Maariv newspaper, the Israeli government is set to give green light for the construction of elevators leading from Jerusalem’s Old City to the Buraq Wall at an estimated cost of NIS 50 million.

Included in the plan are the construction of pedestrian tunnels and the development of the infrastructure so as to boost tourism and prop up Jews’ influx to the Buraq Wall.

As part of the project, large-scale excavations will be carried out underneath the Buraq Wall in a move that is expected to result in fissures and collapses around archaeological and holy Islamic sites.
