Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited on Thursday a housing units project in Ashkelon aimed for Holocaust survivors and Olim mostly from the Soviet Union.

Netanyahu summerized his visit by saying that "For years, with regard to immigrants from the Soviet Union, there was a policy of much talk and zero deeds. We changed it. What you see is a revolution in public housing - we are talking about thousands of housing units, currently 1000 and soon 3000, new houses, modern buildings with all the necessary services.""The vast majority of those who populate these houses are new immigrants, of course there will also be Holocaust survivors. Instead of talking about the solutions, we brought the solutions. We are doing more and more for the immigrants," Netanyahu added.
