The so-called Committee for Planning and Construction, in the municipality of Jerusalem, is scheduled to discuss a plan to confiscate lands from the Mount Scopus neighborhood, in Jerusalem, for the construction of synagogues and a plunge pool.

The synagogue and pool are to be constructed in the settlement neighborhood of “Nosav Zion”. The area of land that will be forfeited is 1.2 dunums, while 90 families live in the community, surrounded by the Mount Scopus neighborhood.

According to to Al Ray, Jerusalem municipality member of the Meretz leftist party, Laura Warten, protested the plan, saying that the Mount Scopus neighborhood lacks many of the urgent and basic amenities, while the municipality seeks to take control of the territories that are not considered as Israeli areas before any country in the world.
