      IDF Jerusalem College Building Plan Approved


      The Jerusalem Building Committee on Monday approved construction of the planned IDF Officer's College, on a hilltop between the Mount of Olives and Mount Scopus. The plan will now be presented to the public, in order to allow those opposed to it to register their opposition. The new school will be built adjacent to Hebrew University, and represents solid development of Jerusalem in an area where the city needs development, municipal officials said.

      The school, to be spread among several stuctures, will total 42,000 square meters, with buildings constructed into the hilltop.
