Jerusalem City Councilman Aryeh King led a protest outside the Headquarters of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO) in the ‘Government House’ in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood of Jerusalem.
The protest was organized by the Israel Land Fund. The protesters demonstrated against the UN’s occupation of the premises without paying property taxes and the construction by the UN organization of illegal structures in Israel’s capital.
Councilman King said at the protest: “They don’t pay arnona (Municipal Taxes) but use the Municipal services – they are modifying the entrance gate and the Government House Building without authorization from the municipality, both of which are listed buildings according to Israeli Law.”
He added “in the last few months they have put up illegal buildings [without applying for construction permits or receiving any form of permission from the municipality or the State).”
