After Wednesday's Arab League economic summit, Malki commented to<span style="font-style: italic"> Asharq</span> that Israel has turned the Shepherd Hotel into an outpost.

"The occupation's land rush in Sheikh Jarrah in Jerusalem is in full swing, working for the Judaization of many different neighborhoods of the city," he said, naming Sheikh Jarrah, Isawiya and the area near the Damascus Gate.
