Palestinians plan 30,000 homes

October 14, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas inaugurated the most ambitious Palestinian housing construction project in the West Bank, which aims to build 30,000 homes in the next five to 10 years.

A newly tarred road led Abbas' motorcade to a site among hills of olive groves near the city of Jenin where housing for 5,000 people will be built.

Large-scale organized housing projects are new to the territory. Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians live in unplanned towns lacking proper infrastructure.
