National Union MK Michael Ben-Ari announced a plan to subsidize apartments in Ramat Aviv Gimmel and other northern Tel Aviv neighborhoods for refugees, foreign workers and infiltrators, in an interview with Army Radio Wednesday.

Ben-Ari said that he is bothered that only southern Tel Aviv neighborhoods (where many foreigners live) are affected by the problem and that his project was inspired after "leftists told me that 'the power of the [real estate] market' protects them" from the problem.

According to the MK, he has already raised tens of thousands of shekels and expects to continue receiving contributions for the project. He said that once he has collected enough money, the organizers will post flyers near Tel Aviv's new central bus station announcing subsidized housing in the northern neighborhoods of the city.
