      Independence Day Sail-by a Victim of Budget Cuts

      The Independence Day flotilla of the Israeli Navy will not take place a week from Thursday because of budget cuts, the Defense Ministry announced Sunday. The ministry cited the diversion of resources to address the changing situation in the Middle East, adding that Israel Defense Forces parking lots around the country would be closed.

      The Israel Air Force fly-by will take place, and certain bases around the country, including naval and air-force bases, will be open.
