Gaza, ALRAY - Planning and Construction Committee of Jerusalem District on Wednesday approved a plan to build a religious school in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied east Jerusalem.
The decision came in spite of the recommendations made by Civil Administration that the building would not serve the local population.
Hebrew daily Haaretz reported that the building consists of nine above and three under-ground storeys, including a religious school, accommodation and other facilities.
"The land earmarked for the building is a state property allocated by the Israel-controlled Jerusalem municipality for the school construction, although the place is structurally designed for the establishment a playground for educational institutions in the neighborhood." the daily said.
