Despite a number of protests over the past two months, the Jerusalem District Court rejected a petition on Sunday from residents of an east Jerusalem neighborhood to stop the construction of a highway through their neighborhood.

Residents of Beit Safafa, located in southeast Jerusalem near Gilo, oppose the extension of the Begin Highway towards the Tunnel Road that leads to Gush Etzion because the highway cuts through the middle of their neighborhood and effectively slices it in two.

Construction started on the road three months ago.
