Committee to Tour South Monday


The Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee is scheduled to tour southern Israel on Monday, in the wake of the escalation of the security situation in recent days. The tour is scheduled to start in Ashkelon with a security meeting involving the Homefront Command and the police, to be attended by the mayor of Ashkelon and local council heads from the Ashkelon Coast, Eshkol, Netivot, Ofakim and Sderot. That will be followed by a condolence call on the family of Moshe Ami, who was killed in Saturday night's Grad attack on the city.

The tour will wind up in Ashdod with a security meeting to be attended by Ashdod's mayor and the heads of the local councils in Gan Yavneh, Kiryat Malachi and Yavneh.
