The Israel Government has begun working on a new Jewish suburban development on the outskirts of Nazareth, the all-Arab Christian city in the Jewish State, the press reported here today.

The project will consist of government offices and several hundred housing units. The cost is expected to be about 3,000,000 pounds, which will be allocated from the current development budget.

A number of prominent Arab personalities in Nazareth oppose the project and the municipal council has attempted to hinder it in many ways, but the Israel Government is going ahead with its plans, the report said.
