IOA resumes work on Jerusalem light rail project
OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has declared resumption of work into the light rail project linking western and eastern sectors of the holy city of Jerusalem.
Hebrew media said that the 14-kilometer long railway would link Mount Herzl to Pisgat Ze’ev, noting that work in the project had stopped in 2008.
The project was supposed to be complete by the end of 2008 but was stopped due to technical problems following the withdrawal of a French company from the project.
The project is backed by all Israeli parties whether in the government or in the opposition. It serves the IOA efforts to Judaize occupied Jerusalem that took an upsurge over the past few months.
