Former minister Aryeh Deri called on his former Shas party members to solve the housing crisis, during a visit to the tent encampment in Holon's Jesse Cohen neighborhood on Tuesday.

"I call on [Shas chairman] Eli Yishai and to Shas members - take this opportunity, don't give the government any rest until it solves the housing crisis," he said.

Deri, chairman who left politics when he was convicted and sent to prison for bribery, said that he had avoided getting involved in the social protest movement up until now because he "saw that [the movement] was doing well and strong enough without me joining."
