Hauzer: Building in Jerusalem will not stop

OCCUPIED JERUSASLEM, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation government has underlined that construction in all areas of Jerusalem would continue unabated similar to any other city.
The Israeli government's secretary Tzvi Hauzer said in a radio statement on Friday that it was important to assert that Israel was building in Jerusalem and would continue to do so.
He said that Israel had clearly stated that the settlement freeze did not include Jerusalem, whether in its western or eastern areas, and "this position is known to all including the Americans".
Jerusalem should expand to accommodate its inhabitants and meet the demand on housing, Hauzer said, adding that his government would do what is necessary to meet the needs in this sector.
The secretary's statement came in the wake of a report published by Hebrew daily Ha'aretz on Thursday quoting planning officials that said: "Some 50,000 new housing units in Jerusalem neighborhoods beyond the Green Line are in various stages of planning and approval."
