PA minister announces housing project for families of prisoners serving life sentences

“Housing and Public Works Minister Maher Ghneim broke ground on the apartment complex in the village of Al-Ubeidiye in the Bethlehem district, for [families] of prisoners serving life sentences. Ghneim declared that ‘This national undertaking reflects the government’s interest in this kind of housing initiative. In addition, this is the first undertaking of its kind whose target population is prisoners’ families, so its importance is double. It illustrates the Palestinian nation’s resolve and optimistic belief that the prisoners’ eventual return to their families is certain.’ It should be noted that… 73 families of prisoners will benefit from the project.”
