Lapid Promises to Build 150,000 Rental Apartments

Israeli Finance Minister Yair Lapid launches plan to build more long-term rental units, but former social protest leader MK Stav Shaffir says the real key is to monitor rental prices.

The ministerial committee for housing has unanimously approved the establishment of the national housing department in the Finance Ministry and the formation of a nationwide housing plan – including a promise by Finance Minister Yair Lapid to build 150,000 new rental apartments across the country.
