Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY - Haaretz newspaper stated that the so-called Jerusalem Development Authority, Ministry of Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage, Ministry of Tourism, and the Jerusalem Municipality have been seeking to accelerate working on the plan of establishing an Aerial Tramway, which will reach the Jerusalem’s Old City.

It is expected that the Aerial Tramway will pass through sensitive sites such as the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Western Wall, and that it could trigger strong opposition from the Palestinians and the international community, as the newspaper claimed.

The Jerusalem Development Authority estimated that it is possible to activate the Aerial Tramway by 2021 in case the plan did not face any obstacle, indicating that the opposition to this project is now increasing.

The Israeli occupation shows the project of establishing the Aerial Tramway as a transportation project that aims at solving the problem of traffic jam in the surrounding of the Jerusalem’s Old City.
