Attias Calls for Patience
Housing Minister Ariel Attias (Shas) has called on the public to remain patient despite high housing prices. The government is working hard to approve new housing projects and increase supply, but it will take some time, he said.
“We are making a tremendous effort, with G-d's help, to create new housing,” Attias told the hareidi-religious Kol Chai radio. “With each of the housing units sold, the buyer goes off the market,” he noted.
