Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and so-called Transportation Minister "Israel" Katz agreed this week to begin promoting what they called "Tracks for Regional Peace" initiative that is intended to create a trade route connecting Europe with the Persian Gulf and the occupation entity.
The initiative is based on the planned extension of railway tracks in northern of the occupied territories, which would link the occupied Haifa's seaport to Jordan's rail network, which in turn will be linked with that of Saudi Arabia and other Sunni Arab states.
The network is envisioned as creating a regional transportation system to enhance trade relations and promote ‘coexistence.'
Introduced in a new PR video from Netanyahu and Katz's offices, the initiative will see the eastward extension of the Haifa-Beit She'an rail line to the Jordanian border and will also include a stop in Jenin, connecting the Palestinians to the broader plan.
Goods are intended to be shipped from Europe to Haifa, allowing them to bypass Syria.
