      Planners for Establishment of Western Negev Community

      The National Planning and Building Council recommended, Tuesday, the establishment of the community of Shizaf in the Ramat Hanegev Council region, which extends from the Egyptian border to the area just south of Be'er Sheva' and includes the Mitzpeh Ramon meteor crater. The Israel Defense Forces have a base named Shizaf, not far from the border.

      The approved urban plan calls for 250 units to be divided between religious and secular households.
