Ma’an News Agency -  15 February 2011


TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma’an) — Israel’s Defense Ministry is looking at the possibility of moving an Israeli military college from central Israel into the occupied West Bank near Jerusalem, Israeli media reported.

The new area under consideration is beyond the Green Line, in territory recognized internationally as occupied, and a zone that Palestinians hope will be part of a future state, Hebrew-language newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth said,

According to the report, Israeli authorities are considering building college facilities between the Hebrew University campus at Mount Scopus and the Brigham Young University’s Jerusalem campus, both built on lands occupied by Israeli forces after 1967.

The report also noted that construction would extend into the Palestinian neighborhood of Wadi Joz.

The plan will be considered by military officials, and passed onto the Israeli ministry of defense if it is approved, the report said.
