Treasury Considers Building Arab University in Sakhnin


The Finance Ministry has held meetings in recent weeks about the possibility of establishing Israel's first Arab university in the Lower Galilee city of Sakhnin, according to a Tuesday-morning report by the Yisrael Hayom daily. The Treasurer's Office said the ministry is "only examining the matter".

The newspaper said consideration of the possibility was a reason that Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Science Minister Ya'akov Perry took part in a tour of the city last week.
