Govt. Approves New Druze City


The government has approved the creation of a new Druze town in the western Galilee, as part of an ongoing effort to relieve a housing shortage in the Druze community. Many existing Druze towns cannot be made larger due to their location.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu noted that the measure shows the difference between treatment of minorities in Israel and in surrounding countries.
