Netanyahu Charged with 'Covert' Freeze on Building


"It can certainly be said there's a freeze, a covert one, planned so that no one talks about it - but it will come to expression meaningfully in the coming months when the building push of recent years runs out and it won't be possible to advance even one more additional structure...this is thousands of housing units that are basically stuck," said Roeh.

Speaking to Galei Tzahal (IDF Radio), the Yesha Chairman added "we got to meet with the prime minister roughly three months ago, we raised this topic and of course he tried to justify it in that meeting due to reasons of coalition pressure, (Finance Minister Yair) Lapid, and this and that threat, but he said he would find an opportunity."
