Jerusalem to Continue to Provide Housing to Gas Explosion Victims


The Jerusalem Municipality is making it possible for the victims of the recent gas explosion to receive an additional week's housing in a hotel.

During the coming week the community administrators will meet with representatives of the Municipality to discuss providing aid to the families affected by the recent explosion in their building.  Eight out of the 20 families affected will be able to return to their apartments after repairs are completed and the appropriate safety precautions are implemented. The remaining 12 apartments are not in fit condition to allow the residents to return and reside in them.
