In the last few days, ads were hung up in Mt. of Olives in East Jerusalem announcing the depositing of plan no. 51870 for the construction of the Israeli Military College. The public is granted 60 days to file any objections or reservations to the plan, after which the Regional Planning Committee can discuss the objections and approve the plan. The planned college would serve as the academy for training senior commanders in the Israeli Military and the Security Forces.
Peace Now: “The Mt. of Olive is important for the three monotheistic religions and is under dispute between Israel and the Palestinians. It is unwise and provocative to put the Military Academy on this sensitive place”.
