Housing Ministry Denies Favoring ultra-Orthodox in Jerusalem Development Project

The project includes 128 rental units and 166 apartments to be sold under the Mehir Lemishtaken affordable housing plan.

An affordable housing project in Jerusalem is drawing fire after the municipality accused the authorities of tailoring the project to the ultra-Orthodox community and demanded it be scrapped. The Housing Ministry and the Israel Lands Administration rejected the accusations, which were published in TheMarker last week.
