The government announced Thursday that it was launching an initiative to populate the Galilee, Jezreel Valley and Golan Heights. More than 10,000 homes in 104 communities were to be offered at reduced prices, Israel Radio reported. Deputy Premier Shimon Peres, the cabinet minister responsible for the development of the Negev and Galilee regions, said that greater investments were made in the local infrastructure, and property was made cheaper. According to figures produced by his office, over 2,500 jobs were available in various professions in the Galilee region. Peres added that were the Labor Party to leave the coalition, investments in the Galilee and Negev would drop in favor of the settlements in Judea and Samaria.
