Steinitz: Find Funds for Ammunition Hill


Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz instructed the Treasury's budget director, Thursday, to find resources to prevent the closing of the Ammunition Hill Visitors Center in Jerusalem. Operators of the center announced, Thursday morning, that they would have to close next week because they had not received budget transfers from the Defense Ministry.

The Treasurer said, "This is one of the most heritage and memorial sites of Israel's history and it is important that every child and, in general, every Israeli citizen, to visit it. I will make every effort to prevent the closure of the Ammunition Hill site"
