OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) is planning to confiscate 662 dunums of Palestinian land between Tur and Aissawayia villages in occupied Jerusalem.

The Israeli Ir Amim organization, specialized in monitoring the situation in East Jerusalem, said on Wednesday that the planning and construction committee of Jerusalem municipality had decided to allocate this area for establishing parks and tourism buildings.

It said that the project is expected to be endorsed by Monday, noting that the area would be allocated for construction of the so-called “National Park” that would be added to the series of parks surrounding the Old City’s gates.

Ir Amim  is an Israeli non-profit organization founded in 2004 that focuses on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in Jerusalem. It seeks to ensure the “dignity and welfare of all its residents and that safeguards their holy places, as well as their historical and cultural heritages.”
