Netanyahu is freezing building in Frum neighborhoods of Yerushalayim

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office refuses to approve the construction of hundreds of housing units in the capital city of Jerusalem, despite the end of the era of pressure from the US administration, as was the case during President Hussain Obama's term.

According to a report by journalist Michael Shemesh in "here," a document by local officials in Jerusalem shows that Netanyahu's office ordered a freeze on construction of hundreds of housing units in Jerusalem. The officials are now asking the Prime Minister's Office to approve the plans urgently, but at this stage Netanyahu refuses to approve the construction.

According to the report, there are about 1,000 housing units for the ultra-Orthodox sector. Including the neighborhoods of Ramat Shlomo, Ramot and Neve Yaakov.

After  DIN's Jerusalem Office called The Prime Minister's Office, the spokeswoman  said that "the Prime Minister's Office is not delaying construction in Jerusalem"
