State to Reimburse Southern Workers Because of Attacks


Following a special meeting of the Knesset Finance Committee, Monday, regarding the security situation in southern Israel, the Ministry of Finance will formulate regulations for reimbursing citizens who were prevented from working or whose businesses were damaged over the last 10 days.

The committe is demanding a regular arrangement that does not just cover the current round of attacks originating in Hamas-controlled Gaza. At the same time, the committee demanded that the arrangement not be so sweeping that they could be used to disable the economy, with people staying at home even though there is no need to.
