The planting will include agricultural works at the Nahal Yatir area on state lands that serve as protection from invasions, environmental harm, illegal construction and trespassing – all common occurrences in the area.
KKL-JNF is the only party allowed to carry planting of this kind.
KKL-JNF's Chairwoman, Ifat Ovadia-Luski: "KKL-JNF is at the Forefront of the country's protection, development and construction. Protection of the soil along with settling and plating are among KKL-JNF's goals since the early days of Zionism, and we're proud to be leading these goals today. With the management of KKL-JNF and its workers, we will continue to contribute to the country's development."
