Some 3000 families, most of them young couples and large families will settle in four new Jerusalem suburbs in former Jordanian territory by the end of the year, the Housing Ministry said today. The four suburbs–Neve Yaacov, Ramot. Gilo and East Talpiot–are all outside the 1967 borders. They will have some 25,000 apartments when completed Housing construction in Neve Yaacov and Gilo has already begun.
