Municipal planners getting mixed messages about building in East Jerusalem – Haaretz – Israel News

Jerusalem municipal planners have been receiving contradictory messages about construction in the east of the city, and in some cases Arab engineers were used to submit East Jerusalem housing plans to avoid suspicion, sources in the capital’s city hall have told Haaretz.

According to the sources, the workers were given informal, oral instructions to act “with caution and sensitivity” when approving plans that might set off diplomatic rows. Officially, however, they were asked to continue working normally, as the government did not commit to a construction freeze in East Jerusalem.
