15,000 of the new homes to be built are over the Green Line, reports "Yediot Ahronot."

Israel's Ministry of Construction and Housing together with Jerusalem Municipality are forming a roof agreement, which would see 28,000 new homes built in the capital over the next decade, reports "Yediot Ahronot." The newspaper adds that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will show the plans to US President Donald Trump when he visits Israel later this month. 15,000 of the apartments are over the Green Line.

About 10,000 of the homes will be offered within the government's fixed buyers price program (Mechir Lemishtaken), which offers discount prices to first time buyers.

Within the Green Line, among other places, 1,850 homes will be built in Beir Hakerem, 1,100 homes near Moshav Ora, 1,830 homes in Arnona near Talpiot, and 4,500 homes on the ridge near Massua - a planned opposed by environmentalists.

Over the Green Line, 10,000 homes will be built in Atarot, 1,180 homes in Gilo and 1,100 homes in Givat Hamatos.
