(Jerusalem, Israel)—A plan to renovate sections of Jerusalem's Old City, which would involve a new gate being broken in the city walls for the first time in 112 years, has been presented to Jerusalem's Planning and Building Committee.
As reported in Haaretz, the new gate will be an entry to a tunnel that would be hewn through the rock under all the layers of the city, beginning between Zion Gate and Dung Gate, leading to a four-story parking garage under the current parking lot not far from the Western Wall. (Photo: Gora Berger)
