Israel intends to build new settlement near border with Egypt

New settlement near border Egypt

Israel intends to discuss a plan on Monday to build a new settlement near the border with Egypt, Hebrew media reported.

According to Haaretz newspaper, the new settlement, which will be called Nitzanit, was planned in the second half of the last decade before it was removed from Israel’s construction agenda in 2010 following strong opposition from local citizens and environmental institutions.

However, these environmental groups, including Israel nature and parks authority, support the construction of this settlement now.

The new settlement will be built south of the Road 211 that leads to Nitzana border crossing with Egypt, and will consist of 1,600 housing units, commercial areas and 200 hotel rooms.
