Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at the weekly cabinet meeting addressed protesters from Tel Aviv and around the country who are staging protests against rising housing costs.

"Come protest in Jerusalem," the prime minister said. "Help me pass land reform [laws]."

The government is working to address the issue, Netanyahu said, "there is a large demand and there aren't enough apartments."

Protesters currently living in tents on Tel Aviv's Rothschild Blvd. should bring their struggle to the Knesset and be patient as land reforms are passed and implemented. "It will take between a year and three years before apartments [enter] the market."
