Sunday, 20 December, the government approved a budget exceeding one billion shekels for the development of haritha and the implementation of long-term urban development plan. It is expected that in the coming years in Harish will move tens of thousands of young families.
Radio station «Sieves Beth» reported that, according to the Ministry of construction, in twenty years the population will reach 60-100 thousand people. Currently in the village there are just over a thousand Israelis.
Commenting on this decision, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that over time, Harish will turn from the village to the city. According to him, this is the real «Zionism». «For many years have not created new towns, and it will be a new city, like Modiin, it will live about 50 thousand people, but according to my estimates, its population will rise quickly. Our goal is to stay ahead of the demand», — quotes the head of the government press service.
