The announcement was made on Monday, during a news briefing in which the security services and several Israeli ministries participated, the Palestinian news agency pointed out.
The source noted that among the institutions are the House of the East, which houses the Arab Studies Society and was the headquarters of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), and the Palestinian Prisoners Club, a non-governmental organization that monitors the issues of detainees in Israeli jails.
The occupation authorities informed that they will continue with this policy under the pretext of not allowing a breach of Israeli sovereignty over the entire city, Maan denounced.
The Israeli Army occupied the eastern part of the metropolis in the 1967 war, and since then it has kept the territory under its control despite United Nations Security Council resolutions.
In fact, in 1980 Israeli authorities declared the entire city as the eternal and indivisible capital of the country, a position rejected by the international community.
According to various NGO, about 200,000 Israeli settlers live in that area and more than 490,000 in the rest of the occupied West Bank.
