The war on the dumps

Less than half a year after strong opposition by residents prevented the authorities from installing a dump for construction waste near French Hill and Isawiya, the same is apparently happening in Har Homa. Last week, following similarly strong opposition from the residents, Deputy Mayor Ofer Berkowitz (Hitorerut) announced that the plan for the construction waste dump has been suspended (by a decision of the Construction and Housing Ministry) until a better location is found.
