Minister of Housing and Construction Uri Ariel expects to see a 50% increase in the number of Jews living in Judea and Samaria by 2019, according to a Reuters report.

Currently there are approximately 400,000 Jewish citizens in Judea and Samaria, and Ariel expects it to rise to around 600,000 by 2019, Insh’allah.

In addition, Ariel estimates that some 300,000-350,000 Jews living in neighborhoods in the eastern half of (united) Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is home to around a million people.

Its not a well-known fact, but the majority of Jerusalem’s residents have been Jewish since the year 1844, and possibly even earlier.
