MK Ariel: Ask PM About the Lack of Building in J'lem


Housing and Construction Minister Uri Ariel took part, Monday morning, in a Knesset Finance Committee hearing on the housing crisis and solutions for it. Asked by Committee Chairman Nissan Slomiansky why there appears to be no construction in Jerusalem, Ariel said to refer the question to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

On Sunday, Deputy Jerusalem Mayor Chaim Miller claimed that Netanyahu has quietly given in to United States demands not to build in areas claimed by the Palestinian Authority, including parts of the capital.
