Israeli housing minister urges construction of 10,000 settler homes
Uri Ariel, the housing minister for the State of Israel, was quoted as saying on Thursday that Israel must build 10,000 homes for illegal settlers in East Jerusalem and the West Bank in order to alleviate “the housing crisis.”
Ariel wrote on his facebook page that the lack of state marketing for settlements over the past year had raised the cost of houses nationwide, and he said that 10,000 units could be launched immediately in the settlements of Beit Arye, Ofarim, and Elkana.
