      Ministers Reject Peretz Appeal of Rail Line to Eilat

      The Ministerial Committee on Internal Affairs and Services rejected, Sunday, the appeal of Environmental Protection Minister Amir Peretz against the establishment of a railroad line extending to the southern port of Eilat.

      Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz noted that the project, including the route, was approved by professional committees with the participation of "green" groups after arguments for and against the line were heard.
