Yishai to Barak: Approve building of new units after freeze

Shas party leader Eli Yishai requested from Defense Minister Ehud Barak to approve in writing the construction of thousands of housing units in Orthodox cities in the West Bank, after a proposed 90-day building freeze ends.
Among the communities that the interior minister mentioned are: Beitar Illit, Modi'in Illit and Maale Adumim. According to Shas sources, the reason behind Yishai's demand is the party's distrust in US government assurances.
