Judea's 'Native' Jews Protest Silent Freeze
A number of IDF soldiers, officers and reservists who were born and raised in Judea and Samaria have sent a letter of protest to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu asking him to solve the housing crisis in the region caused by the “silent freeze.”
“We are the second and third generation born in Judea and Samaria, and we want to build our homes near our parents and the society in which we grew. We wish to express protest at your government's policy regarding construction in Judea and Samaria,” the group said.
