42 MKs: Housing Crisis? Build in Judea, Samaria

More than one-third of the Knesset has signed a letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu calling to solve the housing crisis by building in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem. The letter addressed construction “in regions in the national consensus,” a reference to “settlement blocs” such as Ariel and Gush Etzion.

Ministers Moshe Kachlon and Michael Eitan were among the 42 who signed the missive.
