Birzeit University will be working with civil society to promote the productivity and creativity of traditional crafts and revive the Old City of Hebron.
The Hebron Rehabilitation Committee warns that the Israeli government has begun to implement plans to establish a new settlement in the heart of Hebron’s Old City, on the site of the old bus station which was seized by the Israelis to use as a military base. Israeli reports indicate the former Defence Minister, Moshe Ya’alon has allotted a portion of land seized for military purposes to the Israeli Housing Ministry for settlement purposes. The Israeli Ministry of Housing has planned the construction of 28 new housing units on the site. These new constructions would raise the overall settlers’ population by 10%; as it would allow approximately 100 additional Israelis to settle in the area.
