Transportation and Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz has presented U.S. special envoy Jason Greenblatt with his plan to create an artificial island off the coast of the Gaza Strip where a sea port would be built along with infrastructure that would serve the Palestinian residents of Gaza, Katz said at a press briefing Wednesday.
