Jerusalem: Israeli officials have offered Arab villagers in the occupied West Bank and east Jerusalem the chance to live in an Arab city under Israeli control.
Officials said the offer was an expression of shared interests, since it came from Israel’s embassy in the Arab world, the State Security Council said Sunday in a statement.
A senior Israeli official told the official Tzacharit news website that the offer would not affect Israeli citizens living in Arab towns. The official was not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.
The plan is to provide 50,000 dunams (1.2 square miles) of land in one of the five East Jerusalem settlements under Israeli control to villagers who would have the right to return to their villages, the statement said.
