Netanayhu said to thaw East Jerusalem construction freeze

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly approves the construction of 5,000 apartments in Jewish neighborhoods beyond the Green Line.

The reports come as Netanyahu meets with US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and chief Middle East adviser, Jared Kushner, in Jerusalem.

Chanel 2 reports the 5,000 homes were part of the 6,000 apartments planned for East Jerusalem that Netanyahu froze in recent years.
