Palestinian Capital in Jerusalem Now a Slim Possibility.
Givat HaMatos or “Airplane Hill”, so named for the military plane shot down during the six day war in 1967, has major new settlement plans for 2,610 housing units and 1,100 hotel rooms. These extensive plans were released earlier in the year, however the speed with which planning and approval these plans have proceeded is unprecedented.
Givat HaMatos, “Airplane Hill”, is on the southern fringes of the city limits of Jerusalem. It was once a small quaint area with homes dotted on it. However after multiple evictions and theft of homes by settlers the area has seen major activity in the last 6 months. Indeed construction itself could start this year.
