High Court: 'Elad' to Keep Running Ir David


The Supreme Court rejected, Monday, a petition by the Ir Amim organization against the Jerusalem municipality, the Nature and National Parks Authority and the Environmental Protection Ministry to cancel the agreement under which the Elad organization runs the Ir David site, south of Jerusalem's Old City.

The court ruled that there was no flaw in the agreement. At the same time, it said Elad would not have exclusivity on guides at the site, that the place would operate on Shabbat and that Elad would not collect the entrance fee.
