The Jerusalem Post reports that the National Planning Council has approved the construction of a new community in Mirsham, located in the Lachish Region near Kiryat Gat and Beit Govrin. The new community will provide a permanent home for 45 families that formerly lived in Gush Katif. Two other communities have also been approved in the Lachish area, possibly providing accommodation for around 300 Gush Katif families.

This news has not been well received by environmentalists, however, who may well appeal the decision.
