      277 New Apartments for Ariel

      The city of Ariel has been approved for 277 new housing units. The Defense Ministry approved the move today (Monday). Construction will take approximately three years. Because Ariel is located in the Judea and Samaria region, all housing must be approved by the Defense Ministry. 100 of the units will be reserved for former residents of Gush Katif who were evicted from their homes in 2005.
