Hundreds of people gathered in Jaffa's Kikar Hashaon last week to protest against the planned construction of a six-story hotel in the area, reports www.local.co.il. The demonstrators protested that the planned hotel and its accompanying swimming pool were being slated for construction next to the local mosque, and that this was likely to cause conflict between those wishing to worship at the mosque and those wishing to visit the hotel. The report said the construction plans have not yet received final approval.
