OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- The Zionist municipality controlling Jerusalem decided to start changing the names of the streets in the occupied holy city to Hebrew names, to tighten the occupation’s grip on the city.

The financial committee at the municipality said that it has allocated about $255,000 as a starting budget for the project of Judaizing the names of the streets in east Jerusalem with a clear message to the Palestinian side that Jerusalem is part of the Zionist entity.

The project of changing the names of streets and numbering houses, which was initiated by the occupation's mayor of Jerusalem, the extremist right winger, Nir Barakat, is going to include all streets and alleyways and houses, even those which were built without a permit.

The project is to be carried out with the assistance of aerial pictures and maps and is planned to be completed by the end of this year.
