Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is scheduled to visit the City of David in Jerusalem on Wednesday night, Army Radio reported. The archaeological site, near the Old City, is maintained by right-wing organization Ateret Cohanim. Ir Amim, a group advocating the division of Jerusalem, criticized Netanyahu's visit to the site, citing ongoing attempts by Ateret Cohanim to 'Jewify' Arab neighborhoods in east Jerusalem.
