The Jerusalem Post reports: Transportation and Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz on Sunday night announced that he is working to advance plans to create an artificial island off the coast of Gaza that could improve the Palestinian enclave’s economic and humanitarian situation.

Katz told The Jerusalem Post Annual Conference in New York that the venture would seek to connect the territory to the movement of people and goods

“The off-shore project could provide Gaza with an economic and humanitarian gateway to the world without endangering Israeli security,” he said.
