The Housing Ministry's decision to go forward with plans to build a new 10,000-unit neighborhood near Atarot in east Jerusalem is a mistake, sources in the Prime Minister's Office said Wednesday. According to the sources, quoted by Army Radio, the time was not right to make such proposals due to the Palestinian negotiating track and US objection to any building in east Jerusalem. Earlier Wednesday, Housing and Construction Minister Ze'ev Boim said that the plan was only in its initial phase due to the fact that the capital's ground reserves were running low.
