Construction and Housing Minister Arel Attias (Shas) said on Sunday in an interview with Israel Radio that the high housing prices in Tel Aviv are a result of a shortage of apartments and a lack of available land in the city on which to build more.

He said that there is available land in Modi'in, Rosh Ha'ayin, Yavne, and Herzliya, where it is possible to build up to 25,000 units in the next two years.

Attias' comments came after the PM on Sunday invited students to "Come protest in Jerusalem" and asked them to patiently help him pass new housing legislation.
