Download PDF for this date

The Jewish National Fund is presently carrying out a stepped-up program for the preparation of the infra-structure of Nahal Sinai at a site some five kilometers east of the Arab city of Al Arish in the Gaza Strip.

The ground upon which the new moshav is to be built, covers 500 dunams of sand dunes cut by deep wadis, The JNF plans to level the area’s surface which is to be flattened with a slight downward grade in the direction of the nearby Mediterranean coast, To implement this project, heavy earth moving equipment will have to move more than 600,000 cubic meters of sand.

The first stage of the program, calls for the preparation of an infra-structure for the construction of 100 housing units to be built by the Housing Ministry, The new settlement will depend chiefly on agriculture and tourism for its economy.
