Parks Authority to Invest in Development of Tel Lachish


Director-General Shaul Goldstein of the Nature and National Park Authority said, Thursday, that the authority would invest many resources in the next few years to develop and maintain the Tel Lachish National Park and the surrounding area, between Hevron and the city of Kiryat Gat in the southern part of central Israel.

Addressing hundreds of people who attended the First Lachish Conference, organized by Midreshet Hadarom (College of the South), Goldstein said the funding would come from the authority's budget and heritage programs conceived by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
