      Housing Protest Reaches Beit Shemesh


      Dozens of residents of Beit Shemesh joined a nationwide protest against the high price of housing on Tuesday. Protesters set up tents along the promenade in the city.

      The Beit Shemesh demonstrators accused the Housing Ministry of building housing for the hareidi-religious community alone. They are demanding that 2,000 apartments be built and marketed to young families, former IDF soldiers and new immigrants.
