According to the newspaper, the new rail line -- construction of which first began nine years ago -- will be inaugurated sometime in April or early May.
Work has also reportedly begun on the next phase of the project, which will link the new West Jerusalem rail station to Al-Aqsa’s Al-Burak Wall (referred to by Jews as the “Western Wall”).
According to Yedioth Ahronoth, the latter station will likely be named after U.S. President Donald Trump, who sparked outrage across the Middle East last December by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
A completion date for the Al-Buraq rail station has yet to be set, according to Israeli officials.
