Tens of thousands of tourists from Muslim and Arab countries visited Jerusalem last year, with Indonesia and Turkey in top

SHAFAQNA – According to Haaretz Reported that  ” With Passover and Easter arriving simultaneously this year, the streets of Jerusalem’s Old City have been packed with tourists. But this sight can be deceiving. The capital’s tourism crisis, which began last summer, has yet to really pass. On the interim days of Passover, Jerusalem hotels were only about 60-percent full, and for the seder night and the last days of the holiday, capacity ranges from 80-85 percent. Aryeh Zumer, director of the Jerusalem Hotels Association, says these figures are about 20 percent lower than last year. However, salvation for the city’s tourism industry may well come from a surprising source: Muslim countries, including Arab states.”
