OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Peace Now movement revealed an Israeli plan to build a tourist center in Ein Silwan district south of the Aqsa Mosque.

Spokeswoman for Peace Now Hagit Ofran stated on Thursday that the settlers of Gilad society intend to exploit the tourist sector to justify and carry out their future settlement plans.

Ofran said the district committee for planning and building would discuss this plan next Monday.

She expressed its dismay at the Israeli government for supporting settlement projects in east Jerusalem.

For his part, director of Wadi Hilwa information center Jawad Siyam stated that there are settlement activities of a tourist type in Jerusalem to impose a history that does not exist, noting that the tourist center of Gilad society is part of a wider settlement project called the holy basin.

He affirmed that the Israeli government and its settlers target all the Palestinian lands and real estate in east Jerusalem and they use all means to gradually seize them and expel the Palestinian natives from the holy city.
