West Bank settlements may turn into college

RAMALLAH, West Bank, March 1 (UPI) -- The Palestinian Authority is considering turning the Kadim and Ganim settlements into technical college campus, once Israel pulls out of the West Bank.

Jenin District Gov. Kadura Mousa met Monday to discuss options for how to utilize the soon-to-be-evacuated settlements, hours after Israel decided that it would not likely raze settlement buildings, the Jerusalem Post reported Tuesday.

National Security Adviser Maj. Gen. Giora Eiland said Monday Israel is unlikely to destroy the buildings, partly because of the cost to taxpayers.

Universities, offices, a tourist village or a complex of PA offices are all being considered for the settlement's existing housing and infrastructure.
