The minister said that the distribution process of the 487 units will continue until the middle of next week, noting that the construction and infrastructure works at the units, located in Abu Shaheen Street, are 100% complete.

He added that the Housing Ministry will speed up the implementation process at the East Hidd Town Project, like the other five towns, which are being constructed at the same time.
