Zionist municipal authorities have approved Wednesday a plan to build a Jewish museum and a major settlement project in the Wadi Helweh neighborhood in Silwan, north of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the city of Al-Quds (occupied East Jerusalem), according to a Palestinian legal center.
"They will build a settlement tourism center, dubbed Ma'ayan Hyogen, on a 1200-square-meter area in the eastern part of the neighborhood," the Wadi Helweh Information Center said in a statement.
"The tourism center will include a Jewish museum as part of the Zionist national park around the walls of the Old City," it added.
Ma'ayan Hyogen is a Zionist government project that will be implemented and supervised by the Eliad settlement organization, the center noted.
Palestinians accuse the Zionist entity of trying to "Judaize" the holy city, which they want as the capital of a future Palestinian state.
International law considers the West Bank and Al-Quds - captured by Zionist occupation in 1967 - to be occupied territories and views as illegal all Jewish settlement building on the land.
Palestinians insist that Zionist settlement building must stop before a comprehensive Zionist-Palestinian agreement can be reached.
