MK Katz for Adding Peripheral Communities to Jerusalem

Transport Minister Yisrael Katz announced on Thursday that he intends on promoting a law which if approved would expand the borders of the capital city. The initiative includes adding Ma’ale Adumim, Givat Ze’ev, Gush Etzion and Beitar Illit to the Jerusalem municipality.

“This week we will celebrate the 47th Jerusalem Day. This is the time to further an initiative to strengthen Jerusalem, expand its borers and safeguard its national-Jewish character,” Katz wrote on his Facebook page.
