No new building for Jews in Galilee


The gov’t is starting new housing construction in the Arab town Sakhnin and selling new apartments in the Arab village of Umm el-Fahm, but there are almost no new housing construction in any of the Jewish communities.

But, in the farming community of Migdal, only 30 housing units for young couples have been allowed in the last few years.
