Jerusalemites: The new Israeli map of Jerusalem aims to imit the Arab presence
 
OCCUPIED JERUSALEM,(PIC)-- Adala center and the Civic Coalition for Jerusalem institutions confirmed that the new map of the so-called Quds District, will inevitably lead to besiege the Palestinian Arab presence and the development of settlement activity and Jewish presence in the city.
During a press conference held in a hotel in Jerusalem, the Israeli National Council for Planning and Building rejected all objections made by the residents of East Jerusalem against the structural map for the Jerusalem District.
The representative of the National Coalition, Khalil Tufkaji, presented the Israeli structure policies in Jerusalem and the West Bank and its impact on the Palestinians' lives, saying that they aimed to reduce the Palestinian Arab presence.
For her part, the lawyer Suhad Bishara said in the conference that the Israeli new map of the so-called Quds District aims to connect the West Bank settlements economically, geographically and socially with the city of Jerusalem.
Adnan Hussein, Jerusalem governor, pointed out that this policy has been applied since 1967, adding that the Israeli occupation put great importance in targeting the old city of Jerusalem.
Adala center and the Civic Coalition for Jerusalem institutions have presented a detailed objection in 2008 Jerusalem against the structural map for the Jerusalem District.
