Wikileaks leaked information about suspicious bargains made with the Israeli police to build a new police station on Palestinian lands close to the Settlement of Ma’ale Adumim, the biggest settlement in theWest Bank.

Ilan Baz the former head of the Civil Administration in the West Bank disclosed information about his meeting with officials from the American Embassy in Tel Aviv during which he told the officials that former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Shaul Mofaz former defense Minister attempted to interfere personally to convince Baz to approve the building of a police station in the E1 area, on the lands of the Red Khan- but he refused.

Baz added that at that time, Sharon and Mofaz claimed that their requests to build the police station there was for security reasons. The plans of the project included building conjunctions which belong to the Palestinians. The project was approved after Baz left his position.

The police station was built on the lands of the Red Khan as an alternative to the one which was inside the neighbourhood of Ras Al Amood. This was done through a suspicious bargain which was funded by Elad. The bargain included transferring ownership of the building in Ras Al Amood to Elad in exchange for Elad funding the construction of the new police station on thelandofRed Khannear Ma’ale Adumim.

When the American Ambassador asked about the funding of the project, Baz answered that there were rumours the settlers will be given the Ras al Amood building as soon as they finish building the new station at the Red Khan.
