Plans related to establishing an additional 90-acre settlement in the eastern side of the Issawiya neighbourhood, were revealed by the Israeli municipality of Jerusalem on Saturday.

The Israeli mayor, Moshe Lion, pledged to continue the projects to Judaize the holy city of Jerusalem.

The new project, dubbed 'Silicon Valley', will expand the financial, businesses, shopping and hotel sectors in East Jerusalem.

As a result, the industrial zone will be completely demolished.
