OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli government intends to legalize the seizure of public parks and yards in Silwan district in order to enable the right-wing settler society Elad to take them over and turn them into Talmudic gardens, according to a report published by Haaretz newspaper on Wednesday.

The Israeli ministerial legislation committee had approved an amendment to the law of national parks which allows Jewish societies like Elad to manage these parks.

According to the amendment, societies like Elad will run and Judaize the parks in Silwan and seize more Palestinian lands to turn them into talmudic parks.

Knesset member Yisrael Hasson from the right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu party said such amendment is aimed at preventing organizations opposing Judaization activities in Silwan like Ir Amim society from filing a complain against Elad society.
