Both sides turn up heat on Shas party in battle over renewed building freeze – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

Netanyahu told the inner cabinet on Saturday night that the understandings with the United States included a pledge that East Jerusalem would not be part of the freeze, at which point Yishai quickly announced that he would abstain rather than vote against the freeze.

However, yesterday, Netanyahu’s office issued a statment that said “Discussions with the United States over the formulation of the document of understandings does not involve Jerusalem,” contradicting Netanyahu’s assurances to the inner cabinet.
