Drama in Ramot

A dramatic development occurred last Wednesday when, on the second day of the hearing for all 12,000 objections to the Mitzpe Neftoah construction project submitted to the national board for prioritized residential projects (VATMAL), the committee’s sudden decision was to cancel all planned additional objections and to send the project back to the committee at the Interior Ministry.
