Palestine calls for help to prevent a new Israeli colony

Ramallah, Nov 27 (Prensa Latina) Palestinian Minister of Transportation, Assem Salem, on Saturday called on the International Civil Aviation Organization to intervene to stop the construction of an Israeli colony in the Qalandia Airport, in the occupied area of Jerusalem.

The decision of building over 9,000 houses for Israeli colonists in that airport, closed by the Israeli army two decades ago, is a new provocation, Salem said in a statement.

This official described the strategy of demolition of Palestinian structures in the West Bank and the so-called Holy City as ethnic cleansing.

Built in 1924, the Qalandia Airport is one of the oldest in the Middle East and, therefore, a symbol of Palestine’s sovereignty, he stressed.

This week, the Israeli municipality of Jerusalem sped up the project to build those houses.

This initiative would transform the 124-hectare old airport into a new neighborhood, with parks, hotels, public buildings, commercial areas and houses for the Israeli.

A delegation from the European (EU) visited the place some days ago and condemned this project.
